Peerless Atonement

DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR WF KUMUYI GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT DEEPER CHRISTIAN LIFE MINISTRY.

DATE:27 Jun 2024

KEY VERSE:“And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD” (Leviticus 9:2).

READ:LEVITICUS 9:1-14

MESSAGE: In his book titled, “The Death of Death in the Death of Christ,” John Owen, an English theologian, said, “The proper counsel and intention of God in sending His Son into the world to die was that thereby, He might confirm and ratify the new covenant to His elect and purchase for them all the good things which are contained in the tenure of that covenant – to wit, grace and glory; that by His death He might bring many (yet some certain) children to glory, obtaining for them that were given unto Him by His Father (that is, His whole church) reconciliation with God, remission of sins, faith, righteousness, sanctification and life eternal.”But before this priestly atonement of Christ, Aaron and his sons as priests offered atoning sacrifices. The people were commanded to offer a sin-offering, a burnt-offering, peace- offerings and a meat-offering and items for the sacrifices were expected to be “without blemish”. The sacrifices of the Old Testament foreshadowed the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.Today, we do not need the sacrifices of animals to atone for our sins. Christ, by His full and final sacrifice on the cross at Calvary, finished the work for the redemption of humanity. His sacrifice not only saves from sin but also preserves those saved from sin’s power, influence and consequence.Today, although we are done with the cumbersome rituals of the Levitical sacrifices, each of us is expected to present himself as “a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is [our] reasonable service” (Romans 12:1). If we fully obey God’s word and walk in His way, “the glory of the LORD shall appear” unto us because God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:Christ’s cross is the real deal; ours are tokens of the weight of His love.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:ZECHARIAH 10-14
