sections. The acceptable offering must be
perfect without spot or blemish, illness or
deformity. Those bringing such would be
turned away. There were requirements for
both animal and grain sacrifices. God also
declares contextually, "I am the Lord "
This declaration of sovereignty makes it
clear that His name and reputation are not
to be profaned by an unacceptable or faulty
sacrifice (Leviticus 22:31-33).
Life's Application: We have not been
saved from the bondage of Egypt, but we
have been saved from our sins and just as
was required of Israel in the wilderness,
we owe God a sacrifice. We all know that
God no longer requires animal or grain
sacrifices. As New Testament believers,
we are now under grace because Christ
made the ultimate sacrifice with His death
on the cross. Blood requirement met. Then
what do we owe as a sacrifice? Romans
12:1-2 tells us that our bodies are now a
"living sacrifice" that is made perfect for
God thru Christ. Because of that shed
blood we are able to live holy and accept
able by being OBEDIENT to God's Word.
We are to be transformed by the Holy
Spirit and not conformed to our worldly
surroundings. We must give God our best
in our time, talent and treasures. We have
been perfectly prepared for sanctification
