DCLM Daily Manna 30 April 2022 Devotional
TOPIC: Atonement Required
TEXT: Leviticus 15:1-18
“And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD for his issue.” – (Leviticus 15:15)
DCLM Daily Manna 30 April 2022 MESSAGE:
God is holy. He also expects His people to be holy. The Scripture says, “as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation” (1 Peter 1:15).
In order to teach the Israelites the principle of avoiding defilement and impress upon them the serious requirement of holiness, God made use of situations and circumstances prevalent amongst them. They had to learn that whatever God says is bad and sinful must be avoided at all costs. They were required to observe specified rituals to avoid defilement in His sight. Just as physical defilement requires cleansing, spiritual defilement must be atoned for. Specific sacrifices requiring the death of animals were prescribed for the atonement of sins.
Sin defiles. The psalmist said, “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me” (Psalm 51:5). This means that all men are born defiled and in need of cleansing. Just as God made provision for the atonement of sins for the Israelites through animal sacrifices, Christ’s death at Calvary is for the atonement of sins of the whole world.
All who come to God in repentance and faith will be cleansed from all sins. God is righteous and requires all who approach Him to be cleansed of spiritual defilement. Concealment of defilement leads to divine rejection. “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Christ’s blood can cleanse the foulest stain.
