How often did the Children of Israel celebrate the Day of Atonement?
What happened to the scapegoat?
The scapegoat was to bear the sins of the people: True or False?
LESSON: The Day of Atonement was a reminder of God's Deliverance. God has provided deliverance for us as well. The important thing is that we remember this and reach out and receive what He has done for us.
PRAYER: Father, thank you for that day that you delivered me. Help me to praise you. Amen!
Each salvation experience is different. For those that have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, they have their own story to tell. The Old Testament is the proclamation of the coming Messiah; the New Testament is the fulfillment of that prophecy. The main theme of both Testaments is God's love for us. Christianity reflects on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our hearts are overcome with the great joy that God has provided atonement through His Son that we may receive His salvation and gain everlasting life. God has been steadily preparing our salvation. We know that Jesus Christ is the answer. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. To know Jesus fully is to know God; to obey Jesus fully is to obey God, to serve Jesus fully is to serve God. Dedicate yourself to knowing Jesus fully. May God use us to draw a lost and dying world to Him. May we NEVER for get what Christ has done for us. If you do not know Jesus Christ personally, all you need to do is say something like this: Jesus, come into my heart and life. Be merciful to me, a sinner, cleanse me and make me your own. Be my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Amen!
