The consequence of sin (intentional or not) is death.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Psalm 51: Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.
Read - Leviticus 1-4
Offerings for sin required blood and had to be void of any other material. This represents the truth that we can do nothing or add anything to atone for our sin. It is only by the blood of Christ that we are forgiven.
The grain offering was a freewill offering. It did not atone for sin but was an act of free worship that was a great benefit to the priests for sustenance. Grain would have been tough to come by from this transient people.
Lord, You have required a death to pay for my sin and Jesus has given it. Help me to die to sin and live for You!
The first few paragraphs of this commentary on the sin offering is very interesting:
Israel had to be Mended by Sacrifice regularly because each time their Sin Marred them it had to be payed for via blood. Aren’t we glad that when Jesus Mends us He does so completely (past, present, future) so that now our lives are free to be Living Sacrifices to Him.
