Prayer Reflections for July 11
Honesty time: It was about a year ago that I fell asleep reading Leviticus.
I really tried to get into it, but I was doing it on my own without seeking any outside help or resources or anything. And no matter what, I kept falling asleep reading Leviticus.
It was when I looked into the mirror and saw an imprint of the words on my face that I realized I needed to do something to fix this.
So I started seeking out every resource there was to teach me the deeper meaning of Leviticus and how it impacted my life today.
Thanks to the Enduring Word Commentary, along with other resources, I found a lot of deeper parts that impact my life today. But one, in particular, was about the way that the Jewish people in the Old Testament sacrificed. It seemed that almost anytime someone sinned, there was not just an animal offering, but a long list of rules and regulations on exactly how to do that offering to receive forgiveness from God.
After reading those long lists, I could not help but be utterly grateful for what Jesus did. By His dying on the cross, He became the ultimate sacrifice, so we did not have to do that any longer. We did not have to approach God with sacrifices, because when Jesus died the curtain was ripped and we suddenly no longer had barriers to reach God. Then, with Pentecost, we welcomed God the Holy Spirit into our hearts.
Chapter 10 of Hebrews discusses exactly this. Hebrews 10:4 says “It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.” Hebrews 10:10 says that we have been made holy through the sacrifice of Jesus. No amount of sacrifice could forgive someone the way that Jesus did. The author of Hebrews explains all of this to call us to perseverance of faith.
In order to persevere in faith, we are called to be honest with God. He knows us inside and out- He died for us- so it is up to us to draw to Him with a sincere heart and let Him renew us like water.
