God's mercies are new EVERY DAY!

In Exodus God tells Moses a whole lot of rules and regulations and as I was breezing reading through, this verse caught my eye:
Ex 29 v 36(a):  You shall offer every day a bull as a sin offering for atonement.
and
Ex 29 v 39:  Now this is what you shall offer on the alter: 2 lambs a year old shall be offered day by day, continually
We need forgiveness every day!

Well, people are people and I reckon we are pretty much the same as the people of that time and they needed a sin offering EVERY DAY.  They needed lambs and bulls offered EVERY DAY for their sins!

This made me realise that I am very very grateful that Christ made a one time forever ultimate sacrifice to suffer for my sins and those of everyone else.  And that I am in need of His mercy and grace EVERY DAY.  I am far from perfect and the word says:
Lam 3 v 22-23:  It is because of the Lord's mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His tender compassions fail not. (23) They are new every morning, great and abundant is your stability and faithfulness.
We are in need of our Saviour, His grace, His mercy EVERY DAY.


What does He require of us?
  • Our thanksgiving
  • Our praise
  • Our trust
  • Our lives.
My encouragement to you is to thank God for His ultimate sacrifice (His Son) to save us, and for His grace and mercy, fresh and new EVERY DAY.
Amen and amen

God bless
Tracy

  1. Great reminder. We all tend to overlook this in our busy lives, or is it just me?

  7. Wonderful reminder of just what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross. He paid the price, once and for all. We no longer need to offer daily sacrifices for our sins. But we should remember to thank Him daily.

  11. Great post, Tracy! I love these verses in Lamentations - I pray them every morning. If not for God's grace...I shudder to think!

    Thanks for stopping by Life Lessons! I appreciate your comment, and the wealth of information about those helping in the townships. It's good to hear of a large number of people who are meeting so many of the practical needs of the people in these areas!

    I probably didn't do a very good job of explaining our hosts comment - they have learned the Xhosa language and have established churches in the Port Elizabeth townships. A large part of their ministry involves training the Xhosa men to take over those works so they are run by national pastors. An amazing work!

    We thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful country! And hope we can visit again some day! Hugs & God bless!
