Thank you for bringing your children to come worship with us at Wellspring Church yesterday morning! Last week we talked about how and why the tabernacle was built. This week the lesson came from the book of Leviticus and described the laws God gave Moses on how the Israelites were to live holy lives.
God gave rules about offerings, about priests, about how to offer sacrifices, and about how the Israelites should live. God explained that on one day a year, the Day of Atonement, a blood sacrifice would be offered to pay for the sins of the people. The big question offered to the kids yesterday was, "Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Because God is holy, His forgiveness requires payment for sin. Jesus made the ultimate payment for sin with His death on the cross."
Spend time with your kids this week talking about how they can live holy lives because God is holy. The Israelites, in the book of Leviticus, had to obey certain rules and offer a blood sacrifice for their sins every year. Praise God for sending Jesus to die on the cross to pay for our sins so we don't have to offer up sacrifices every year. God forgives our sin when we trust in Him.
