Scripture: Leviticus 5:14-19. Click here to view full scripture.
Observation: What was going on in the Bible at this time?
In the Bible, a guilt offering was used as a way to take care of sin that was committed unintentionally. It was for people who sinned against the Tabernacle or the priesthood or for those who sinned against someone unintentionally. A ram without defects was required for the sacrifice. Follow along in Leviticus 5:14-19, as we continue our “30-Day Walk with Jesus” series!
Application: How can we apply this to our lives?
Jesus’ death has made guilt offerings unnecessary today, and we must thank God for His precious gift to us. However, God always forgives us when we sin, and He wants us to forgive others, modeling after Him. We do still need to make things right with others around us. We are to love and forgive, just as God loves and forgives us when we do not deserve it.
Prayer: What can we pray for in regards to these passages?
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the examples and stories that You have placed in Your Word for us to learn from. Father, we know that we are sinners, and we ask for Your forgiveness. Please help us to forgive others who have hurt us and make things right with those we hurt. Please help us to always follow Your ways for us, obeying and praising You through all circumstances in our lives. Please help us to love and obey You wholeheartedly. Please be with those who have rejected You, and help them to return to You, Father, before judgement. Please help us to draw near to You, and please protect us from giving in to the pressures of this fallen world. We want to live Godly lives. When we face struggles in this life, Father, please help us to call upon You. We thank You for Your son Jesus who died to free us from the slavery of our sins. Thank You for the promise of one day living in eternity with You. Please guide and protect us, our friends, families, pets, and our brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering. We love You and thank You for everything. – in Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
