Day 334

GUILT OFFERING

And though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering,

he will see his offspring and prolong his days.

Isaiah 53:10

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, if there had been another way to cover your guilt, My Father would have chosen it. But it took My life, a willing sacrifice, to pay for the sins of all My children. No longer would the high priest lead the scapegoat outside the tent to appease a Holy God. Instead, I became the once and for all guilt offering. I was led "out of the camp," to the outskirts of Jerusalem where I was crucified for you. Just for the love of you, My child.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
You were the scapegoat for my failures, Lord, the guilt offering sacrificed on my behalf. You, who knew no guilt; You, who were never tainted by sin; You, whose very name spelled purity and holiness—You gave Your very life for me. Can I ever thank You enough?

SIMPLE TRUTH

We're a special part of God's own heart.
