TOPIC- Unintentional Sin, A daily devotion for April 5th

Read the Scripture: Leviticus 5

The Lord said to Moses: When anyone is unfaithful to the Lord by sinning unintentionally in regard to any of the Lord’s holy things, they are to bring to the Lord as a penalty a ram from the flock, one without defect and of the proper value in silver, according to the sanctuary shekel. It is a guilt offering. Lev 5:14-15

A distinction of the sin offering is that often the sin was said to be unintentional. It is dealing not with acts of deliberate evil, which all of us commit from time to time, but it is dealing with the nature which prompts those acts, and which takes us by surprise.

That is a graphic illustration of the very thing which this offering addresses. Even in moments of triumph there is that taint of selfishness, that evil, in every human heart. That is what the sin offering is dealing with.

Father, how thoroughly you understand me! You know what can lurk in my life, hidden away, keeping me from knowing the full measure of your grace. Thank you that you have made provision for all my sins, even those I am not aware of.

Life Application

As we encounter the surprise, often shock, of our sinfulness, does it increase our awe at the astounding sacrifice paid for our forgiveness? Do we respond with life-changing gratitude and worship?
