Scripture Union Daily Guide 2 June 2024: Reconciliation, Forgiveness, And Restoration of Fellowship!

Daily Guide Devotional For Today 2nd June 2024 (Sunday)

Do You Know That? Daily Guide Reading is published by Scripture Union Press & Books Ltd, an arm of Scripture Union Nigeria. Daily Guide is a true nondenominational, interdenominational Christian Bible engagement/reading aid – meditate on the Bible without denominational colorations. May the Lord bless you as you study!

TODAY’S TOPIC: RECONCILIATION, FORGIVENESS, AND RESTORATION OF FELLOWSHIP!
OPENING PRAYER: Oh Lord, grant me divine guidance as I read and meditate on your word in Jesus name.
SCRIPTURE: LEVITICUS 4:22-35

Question(s) for Reflection
* Q 1: What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
Read vs.26 and 35 again to identify the purpose of instituting these sacrifices. It is amazing to realize that God always wants to have fellowship with His people and worshippers. From His perspective, we are very significant to Him. He misses us when we wander away.

From today’s passage, note His desire to restore relationship with individual leader as well as ordinary people (v.27). He wants them to realize their faults and trace their way back to Him. His desire is not primarily the sacrifices of His people (Psalm 51:16,17), rather, He wants to forgive and restore relationship and friendship.

Amazing! The first question He asked Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is, “Where are you” (Genesis 3:9)? Should He call out and ask you same question today, what would your answer be?
Observe the size of animals required for each category of sinners. He requires a bull for the high priest, and the entire congregation, a goat for a leader (possibly lay) and sheep for the ordinary people who sin.

What can we learn from these? In all, the representative blood is rubbed on the horn of the altar by the high priest while the rest of the blood is poured out at the base of the altar. Fats are highly flammable hence they are removed and placed on the fiery altar. The other parts of the animals are carried to a sacred place where ashes are disposed of. What can we learn from this?

* Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD
1. What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2. For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4. This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

5. Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

6. Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Closing Prayer
Dear Lord, help me to always maintain a good relationship with you.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Philippians 4:19 ‐ 20
19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
