DAILY READINGS: Leviticus:5:14 to 6:7; Psalm 105; Acts:27:27-44
And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. Leviticus:1:4
In the burnt offering, the sweet value of the animal was transferred to the offerer and then the animal was burned on the altar before God. In the non-sweet savour sacrifices—the sin and trespass offerings— the sin of the offerer was transferred to the animal and, except for the fat and kidneys, the animal was burned outside the camp. Both offerings have their fulfillment in Christ. With our sins upon Him, He was judged outside the camp, but through the Holy Spirit, the goodness of Christ in each believer will continue to refresh the Father forever. What a transaction! Our sin for the praise of God! —W. A. H.
The gifts you bring with loving hand, your Lord will not disown!
Their odours sweet to Heaven, shall rise like incense round His throne.
— Fanny Crosby
