Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
You shall daily make a burnt offering to the Lord of a lamb of the first year without blemish; you shall prepare it every morning. And you shall prepare a grain offering with it every morning, a sixth of an ephah, and a third of a hin of oil to moisten the fine flour. This grain offering is a perpetual ordinance, to be made regularly to the Lord. – Ezek. 46:13-14

Under the Old Covenant sacrificial system, the priest had to make an offering to the Lord “every morning.” He would slaughter a “lamb of the first year” and then prepare it. The Grain offering was next: “a perpetual ordinance, to be made regularly to the Lord” (v 14). The point is this: a new sacrifice was required every single day! The people of Israel never stopped sinning; so the sacrifices were required day after day after day. Doesn’t it sound exhausting?

But when Jesus came and died on the Cross, He died “once for all” (Heb. 10:10). We no longer need priests who stand before the Lord “ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins” (Heb. 10:11). Jesus, our High Priest, offered His body on the Cross! “For by one offering He has perfected [us] forever” (Heb. 10:14).

The Cross is enough for all your sins: past, present and future. Go to God. He loves you! A place has already been made for you at the table of God’s goodness by the blood of Jesus Christ. Come. Eat, drink, and be full.


Father, thank You for receiving me! Thank You that my time doesn’t have to be filled up with sacrifices and offerings meant to appease Your wrath. I can simply enjoy Your presence. Your fiery wrath was poured out on Jesus at the Cross! And that means there is nothing left for me but love, in Jesus’ name.
