Ezekiel 42-44, 1 John 2
“My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous” (1 John 2:1). So very thankful for an advocate who pleads my case! His sacrifice paid my price. His faithful love secures my place. His seated position assures my heart!
Ruby-i love it when someone’s comment helps me connect the readings- like yours does! Here’s the verse from 1 John 2 that came to me as soon as i read your comment. 1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. Old Testament changed to the New. BIG changes! Thank You Jesus!!
At the end of chapter 43, it goes on to list the seven days worth of sin offerings the Israelites were to offer to purify themselves, and then it says, “Then I will accept you, declares the Sovereign Lord.” WOW it just seems so crazy to me that prior to Jesus’ purification, God’s beloved people still had to atone for their own sins. And then and only then would God accept them. Seems so crazy to me. So thankful for salvation through Christ!
Today marks one month of reading the Bible every day for me!! Thanks ladies for always helping to provide insights into readings I may struggle with and different interpretations of the Lords word! So thankful for SRT(:
It’s hard to believe how quickly this year has gone. Tomorrow is December and I’m wondering what I will do next year. This has been a fantastic way to read the Bible in a year. Thanks SRT! And thank you wonderful community.
1 John 2:17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
Welcome aboard! So glad you have figured out a way to get in Gods Word daily. Reading through the Bible with SRT is a great place to start or finish your day! Enjoy :)
