Scripture Union Daily Guide 16th May 2023 Tuesday Outline

Incense, (vs.1-10) symbolizes prayer, (compare Psalms 141:2; Revelations 8:3-4). This is one of God’s gracious provisions for meeting with us at the level of our needs (Hebrews 4:16). Notice the daily responsibility God gave to Aaron in vs.7-9. What caution can you see in v.9 and does that relate with what God requires from us today?

The atonement sacrifice was to be done once a year and it must be holy before the Lord. No other atonement is required today – the death of Jesus Christ brought an end to the yearly atonement (refer to Hebrews 10:19-22)
Note that both the rich and the poor were to make the same offering during the census (vs.11-16). It was a ransom everyone could afford. Similarly, in Jesus Christ as our ransom before God, the rich do not have any advantage over the poor.

At the foot of the cross, all are equal. Notice here that the poor were not exempted from paying because they were poor. In the same way, all of us should contribute, as we are able, to the Lord’s work.

Practice/Word Application
So what? We should be eternally grateful that Jesus paid the debt of sin that we could never have paid (see Psalm 49:7-8).

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

Closing Prayer
Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for dying to set me free.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Deuteronomy 28:3
