What attributes of God’s character of love do you see in today’s reading?
He desires my fidelity to Him alone. He desires my purity. He provides atonement for my sins. He desires me to live by His word. He makes the way for me and brings me to the Promised Land (Heaven).
Where do you see the theme of Jesus and Him Crucified in today’s reading?
Jesus is represented by the various sacrifices. God provides blood to make atonement for our souls. This point to the blood of Jesus that makes atonement for my soul. Jesus was mocked and blasphemed. Three times, like when the Devil tempted Him in the wilderness, He was told by the crowd, chief priests and those hanging with Him to save Himself "if He is the Son of God." This is the same Satanic temptation the Devil used at the begining of His ministry. Satan used the crowd, chief priests and thieves to tempt Jesus. From 12pm to 3pm darkness covered the land, like the darkness of my sin. It was at that time that Jesus felt the heart wrenching seperation from the Father, cried out and died...for me.
What is the Holy Spirit saying to you through today’s reading?
Jesus endured the mockery, beatings, blasphamy and weight of sin to provide atonement for you. You are atoned for and cleansed by His blood. No go and live by His word. Live in purity.
