If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering: And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him. And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity. (Lev. 5:15-17)
God wanted His people to understand the consequences of sin as a trespass against God, that no one was without sin, and that sin cost everyone dearly. He sought the children of Israel to walk in His ways and strive to be holy and righteous in their personal lives, their relationships with one another, and in their walk with Him. They were to do justly, love mercy, and to walk humbly with their God and when they did not, which was often, they were to bring the sacrifice unto the priest and to the Lord to atone for their sin. The sacrifice, with the shedding of blood, was to cover their trespasses and sins until the coming of Jesus Christ, the Messiah of God, who would atone for the sins of the world and finish the sacrificial system as the final and perfect sacrifice for sin.
Understanding that though the Levitical laws God prescribed for the priests to offer sacrifices for sin are no longer necessary because Jesus has offered Himself as the last and perfect sacrifice for sin, we are still to be holy before God and offer ourselves as living sacrifices. God wants His people even today to walk holy before Him, act properly in relationships with one another and with the world, and to glorify Him as we walk with Him and through Him as pilgrims and strangers in this world. Because Christ is our sacrifice for sin our sins are covered and paid for, but that is not a license to sin all we want to, but liberty in Christ to live as He would have us live, in Him as His holy people, priests of the new covenant and preachers of righteousness with a message of hope for this lost and dying world until He takes us Home to be with Him.
Until that day, God sends us out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our GOD has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of GOD so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of GOD might have life in His Name.
GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
