THE MEAL OF FORGIVENESS
*Read: Leviticus 4:13-20*
…For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many_ (Romans 5:15).
Adam and Eve did not know the disastrous repercussions of the forbidden fruit they ate in the Garden of Eden, until after they had eaten it. when the sons of the prophets in the time of Elisha went to the farm to fetch vegetables, they also fetched poisonous vegetable together with the good ones. They did not know, until they ate it and it reached their stomach. They cried out to the Man of God, Elisha, and he purified it through some flour *(2Kgs. 4:38-41).*
Also, many sinners do not know the evils that are clothed or wrapped in the sins they are committing. Our forefathers ate the forbidden fruit by God and they brought sins, death, sorrows, sighs and evils to mankind *(Rm. 5:12, 19).* Through food, man entered into bondage of Satan, sin and death. One major way people contract sickness today, is through what they eat, drink and inhale. Terrible sicknesses and disease are affecting mankind through food and drinks.
I have the joy to announce to you that there is one meal that leads to your forgiveness and freedom from sin. Jesus Christ is the meal. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always”. And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst” *(Jn. 6:33-35).* Jesus Christ terminates guilt of sin. He cancels the power of sins. He breaks the bondage and yokes of Satan, sin and sickness. His body is the meal of forgiveness. Eat Him today by accepting Him as your Lord and Saviour.
*1.* Thank you glorious Father for the provision of the meal of forgiveness in Jesus Christ.
*2.* Lord, I overcome my besetting sin, I submit my life to You and eat the bread of life today.
*3.* Father of all flesh, let all unbelievers know Jesus Christ as the Meal of their forgiveness today.
