First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Leviticus 16.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — The Lord gives Moses laws around how the high priest can enter the holiest room of the Tabernacle only one day a year on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement, the holiest day of the Jewish year) with blood sacrificed to atone for all the people’s sins.
- Doctrinal — Jesus is our “high priest” who entered God’s presence in the throne room of heaven, carrying his own blood as a sacrifice, atoning for sins and ending the need for any more blood sacrifices forever (see Hebrews 7:26-27, 9:11-14, and 9:23-27).
- Inspirational — I owe everything to Jesus, who was my sacrifice for sins, whose blood was needed so I could be forgiven, who was my high priest who entered God’s presence with his own blood, and purchased my atonement from sins forever.
