The Atonement For Sin

Leviticus 16:1–34

In spite of God’s desire that we be holy, He is fully aware that we will not remain free from sin.

But because He loves us and is gracious to us, He provides a way for our sins to be forgiven.

In the Old Testament, the Israelites were cleansed from sin annually on the Day of Atonement.

This yearly event was a picture of the atonement that would be accomplished through Jesus’ sacrifice.

Since Jesus died and rose from the dead, and offered Himself to pay for our sins once and for all, we are cleansed through His work.

We can rely on His forgiveness moment by moment.
