Leviticus 3:1 And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace offering, if he offer it of the herd; whether it be a male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before the LORD.
This offering is a picture of the coming Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. For that reason it must be without blemish because Jesus was and is and has always been without blemish. He is the sinless Son of God! All the Scriptures point to Him!
Tomorrow’s reading Leviticus 4
Not interested in externals
Joel 2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, And turn unto the LORD your God: For he is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness, And repenteth him of the evil.
God is not interested in rituals or externals. He is interested in what is happening in your heart! He wants your heart to be broken instead of your tearing your clothes in a show. He is a good God. He wants to work in our lives.
Notice His character here in these verses, He is gracious, merciful, slow to anger, of great kindness, and doesn’t want to see us hurt! He is good and has always been so!
So no external shows please. Let it be from the heart out and not the other way around!
