“Today” is the day for faith!
Scripture reading for February 19th: Leviticus 4-7, Hebrews 3
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 3:12-14 “Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.”
Unbelief is a deadly sin and God sees it as evil. It always leads people away from God and into greater darkness. It hardens the heart and deceives our minds. Believers are to exhort one another to keep the faith and hold fast our confidence in Jesus Christ as our Savior from sin. “Today” is the only day we have to live by faith. Tomorrow may be too late! We will stand before God and answer.
Faith Confession and prayer: I hold on to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the only way of salvation. Lord help me to be watchful over my life and others, exhorting myself and them to hold fast to faith in God’s promise through Jesus.
Leviticus 6:27-30 “If anyone of the common people sins unintentionally in doing any one of the things that by the Lord’s commandments ought not to be done, and realizes his guilt, or the sin which he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring for his offering a goat, a female without blemish, for his sin which he has committed. And he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering and kill the sin offering in the place of burnt offering. And the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar. . .”
