The scripture for today, July 1 (7/1), is Leviticus 7:1f as found in the Old Testament of the Bible.

“These are the regulations for the guilt offering, which is most holy.  The guilt offering is to be slaughtered in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered, and its blood is to be sprinkled against the altar on all sides.”

Romans 3:23 says the wages of sin is death.  The price was paid over and over with perfect animal sacrifices in the Old Testament. But Jesus nailed the Old Law to the cross (Colossians 2:14), and with his one sacrifice made it so that no more blood sacrifices were necessary (Hebrews 8-9).

In a sense, Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, laid down on the altar of the world where his blood flowed from all sides of the cross to all sides of the earth.

Jesus paid the penalty for our sins in our place.  Do you ever thank him?

    I probably do not thank Him nearly enough. Although, I am daily grateful for what He did for me. There are times when I am so awed by His willingness to die in my place that it is almost as if I just believed the Gospel for the first time. Thank you for reminding me to be more grateful for His work on the cross. Thank you, Lord, for giving me Your saving Grace and Your life. I give you my life willingly.

  2. THank you so much for your wonderful devotionals, dear Katheryn.   “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17

Tell me what you think, friend.
