A thousand splinters

The rough hewn bean stands within the man made and well-worn hole.
A breath is taken and yet the already tired legs falter and the knees bend. The already torn and mutilated back slides down the blood covered wood causing new splinters of various sizes to tear into the already open and exposed flesh. Sending a new shutter of pain throughout the battered body that now hangs upon the cross, each sliver another sin purchased with His blood that now saturates the support beam He is nailed too.
“Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” Comes from He who is upon this cross as He strains upward to get a new breath, once again shaking in pain as the shards of wood dig into His back anew. Each one another one He welcomes because each is a sin He will forgive.
Your sin.

To deny why Christ went upon the cross is to deny Him

Within the book of Leviticus is the laws Moses received from God upon Mount Sinai. Each sin is listed and every type of sacrifice is named according to each sin from minor offerings to even the death of the person. These sin are why Jesus Christ went to the cross and the sacrifice He made from being beaten, whipped, nailed to the cross and even His death were why Leviticus was written and why Christ did what he did.
Many in today’s world though do not acknowledge the book of Leviticus. They use the statement “Jesus died for our sin this book is now moot.”
I say, if you do not know what is a sin how can you know you are clean of it? All of the Bible is relevant and important:
2 Timothy 3: 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
If you deny any part of the Bible you are in essence denying Jesus Christ.
Matthew 10: 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
So I challenge all to read the book of Leviticus and accept what is written within it. If it is called a sin within that book then it is a sin. If it is still a part of your life and you feel no remorse in committing these sins or sin then are you in denial?
