The Sin Offering and Christ

Preparing our Hearts to Worship


In an effort to help you prepare for the July 24th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on how the Old Testament Sacrifices pointed to Christ, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “The Sin Offering and Christ”. The main Scripture for the day is Leviticus 4. The other passages are either referenced in the message or provide additional insight for reflection.


(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)
