Leviticus 15-18; Psalms 31; Hebrews 6

Our reading in Leviticus is all about laws about bodily functions, sexual relations and animal sacrifices.  It also maps out the day of atonement.  They had to atone for their sins each year and Aaron was the high priest to do it.

He shall make atonement for the holy place, because of the

          impurities of the sons of Israel and because of their

          transgressions in regard to all their sins; and thus he shall

          do for the tent of meeting which abides with them in the

          midst of their impurities.” (Leviticus 16:16 ESV)

Hebrews ends with the certainty of God’s promise.  A promise of what we have now that Christ has paid the price.  He has atoned for our sins so we no longer have to.

“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul,

          a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,

          where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having

         become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”

(Hebrews 6:19-20 ESV)

“But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord, I say, ‘You are my God.’” (Psalms 31:14 ESV)
