Thank God For The Cross
Then Moses said, This is what the Lord has commanded you to do, so that the glory of the Lord may appear to you. Leviticus 9:6
Scripture Focus: Hebrews 9:11-15
We can barely begin to comprehend, I think, the sights, sounds, and smells of the daily sacrifices which the Israelites were required to offer in order to have access to their God. The list in Leviticus 9 of sacrifices connected with Aaron's consecration may illustrate.
- 1. A sin offering for Aaron; a calf was killed and the blood presented to Aaron. He dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar; most of the blood was then poured at the base of the altar.
- 2. That was followed by a burnt offering for Aaron.
- 3. Then there was a sin offering for the people; a goat killed and burnt on the altar.
- 4. A burnt offering for the people. 5. A grain offering for the people. 6. A peace offering for the people.
Thenthe Lord showed up! "The glory of the Lord appeared to all the people..." (9:23). When I read of all that was required at that time, I can only rejoice with the writer to the Hebrews, that "we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus..."
(Hebrews 10:19, 20).
Insight: See the contrast; fall in worship. Thank God for the cross!
