All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on (encounter Him) Him.
Isaiah 53:6 NASB
The priest shall make atonement before the Lord for the person who goes astray when he sins unintentionally, making atonement for him that he may be forgiven.
Numbers 15:28 NASB
Without a sacrifice of atonement, there is no forgiveness. Jesus was the sacrifice that made atonement for our sins. Once and for all. We have been redeemed.
When you come to the foot of the cross and encounter Him, Jesus, knowing He took your iniquity, all of it, upon Himself, that is when eternal salvation takes place. That encounter that turns us to God’s way, the surrender of our soul to follow Jesus as His disciples.
🌹Holy God. God of mercy. God of grace. I confess that I have forsaken the right way and gone astray in my heart and do not know Your ways. Do not be angry anymore, Lord. In my affliction I went astray, but now I seek to keep Your word. I pray God that as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, that You would keep my mind from being led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to You, the Christ. I ask in the name of Jesus Christ and for His glory, amen.
(2 Peter 2:15; Hebrews 3:10; Psalms 119:67;
