Reading for February 03, 2018: Leviticus 1 – 5
“It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the LORD.” Leviticus 5:19 (KJV)
Overlooked transgression is a sin you may have committed ignorantly, then, realized that you had sinned against Holy God. It is sin which needs repentance just as any other. In the case of sinning against God ignorance is not an excuse, nor a valid reason.
Hear what John Gill says of Leviticus 5:19…
“It is a trespass offering,…. An offering for a trespass committed:
he hath certainly trespassed against the Lord; though committed ignorantly, and therefore an offering must be brought; for no sin of any kind must be overlooked, passed by, or forgiven, without a sacrifice, or without atonement made by sacrifice…” John Gill
Is there a sin you committed against the Lord ignorantly? Maybe you just realized it was, or maybe you have been dwelling on what to do with it or about it. Call on the name of Jesus who our sacrifice for all our sin. His death has redeemed us from all our sin, guilt, and condemnation.
An old adage says, “Keep your accounts short.” That is especially so with God and our sin. When the child of God realizes their sin the Spirit of God within us will convict us and lead us to confession of that sin unto repentance, and forgiveness from the Son and the Father.
