January 24 – Day 10: Tabernacle Prayers
The Brazen Altar
An altar, in the Old Testament, was a place of sacrifice. People provided clean animals as a sacrifice so that they would appear clean before God. At the cross, Jesus, the Lamb of God, gave the ultimate sacrifice for us, and in doing so made us appear clean before God once and for all. In the Old Testament, they provided the sacrifice to God. In the New Testament, God provided Jesus as the sacrifice for us.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (Colossians 1:14)
THE BRAZEN ALTAR – THE CROSS OF JESUS
As you go about your duties each day, keep in mind the sacrifice that God provided to make us appear clean before him, so we could live in relationship with him.
Today, pray about the cross. Thank Jesus for making you clean before God and for sacrificing his life so you could be with God.
think about it:
What does the “redemption through his blood” mean to you?
How has it made a difference in your life?
