TOPIC: A More Perfect Way

“For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD.” – (Leviticus 16:30)
DCLM Daily Manna 9 June 2022 MESSAGE:
Sin is man’s greatest challenge on earth. It is what separates man from God. Sin enslaves, and no one can, on his own, cancel his sin and its consequences. The more man attempts to dig himself out of sin, the more he sinks into the abyss of helplessness. To be free from sin therefore, would require the intervention of superior power, the One who alone knows how to disentangle man from the tyranny of evil and wickedness.
The Almighty God took the initiative with the children of Israel when He appointed Aaron to be the high priest. His job was essentially to make atonement for the sins of the Israelites. To do this, a day was set aside each year for him to enter into the most holy place in the temple, make animal sacrifices to cleanse his own sin and the sin of the people of Israel.
So, every year, the entire nation stood still to allow the high priest to repeat this ritual of atonement, under very strict rules. Without doubt, this old system of atonement or covering sins, was grossly limited, and did not provide a permanent solution to man’s sin problem.
While Aaron’s animal sacrifices only succeeded in temporarily covering the sins of the people, Christ’s sacrifice of Himself brought total cleansing from sin, once and for all. Today, we can now come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and grace in time of need. Sinners can have their sins forgiven as they place their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the whole world.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Christ is the only route that leads to God.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Chronicles 5-8
