Under the law everyone had to keep every commandment and law that was given to Moses. There was no way anyone could accomplish this as they were all human just as we are with the same weaknesses of the flesh all are born into. In the Old Testament Aaron laid his hands upon the chosen goat and confessed the iniquities of the people upon the goat which was then turned out into the wilderness (a land not inhabited). Lev. 16:15-16. The goat bore their iniquities. Each year they had to sacrifice a lamb to cover their sins. Yet that wasn’t enough as it only rolled the sins over for another year.
Aren’t you so glad we have a Heavenly Father who loved us so much He was willing to send His Son Jesus Christ as the final sacrifice for all the sins of mankind? Christ loved us so much He suffered a cruel death on the cross taking all our sins upon himself? Through our faith in Christ and what He did on the cross we can live with the assurance our sins are forgiven. Completely wiped clean to be remembered no more.
Keeping our faith isn’t always easy but being faithful has great rewards. Through faith in Christ we are saved and given a promise of a home in heaven; living in faith we can walk through our days with peace in our heart and with joy in our life knowing the Father is in control. Galatians 3:13-14
Heavenly Father, we thank You from the depths of our heart for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to redeem us from the curse of eternal death. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your love, sacrifice and suffering. Thank You for taking our sins upon Yourself, dying a cruel death on the cross so we through our faith in You we have an assurance of a home in heaven when this life is finished. We love You Lord and give You all the honor and glory that is Yours and Yours alone. In Jesus Precious Name! Amen
