7/2/11 Leviticus 4-6; Acts 14
S: Leviticus 4:27-28 If any member of the community sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the Lord ’s commands, when they realize their guilt and the sin they have committed becomes known, they must bring as their offering for the sin they committed a female goat without defect.
O: This sentiment is repeated for many different categories of people – all sorts of people who sin unintentionally, when they figure out that they’ve sinned, they should offer a blood sacrifice to propitiate the sin.
A: Even unintended sin has consequences. But God has provided a sacrifice for us – Jesus Christ, whose blood covers all our sins, both intentional and unintentional. So we can confess our sins and trust that He will forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
P: Father, we thank You that You sent Your Son to be the blood sacrifice to cover our sins.
