    I don’t think I’ve ever heard or thought of that first sacrifice made for a covering for Adam and Eve! Thank you for showing us that. And looking back at that and why it had to be done . . .it was never God’s first choice, His desire, for sacrifice and offerings from us. Do you think that He desired love and obedience . . .trust in Him more?
    Thinking about Jesus being lifted up, how God foreshadowed that when Moses lifted up the snake on His rod. It is hard to look up at Him, thinking of Him on the cross, thinking of how my sins put Him there. When I have failed Him, I too have such trouble looking at Him. But, it’s the only thing I can do with my sin. How great He is to take it from us!
    love you and your wonderful exploring of this Psalm! deb

    Hi Theresa,

    Thanks for the reminder … always good to look up. Sometimes our own perception of how God sees us can cause us to go so far off base. I’ll be looking up!

    Blessings

    Deb,

    Isn’t that something? God provided that sacrifice for them ,and for the ram for Abraham when he was about to sacrifice Isaac, and then Jesus! I know I have only scratched the surface,and it is even possible that I didn’t explain it really that well…just glimpses 🙂

    Ann,

    It is a wonderful thing to know that as far as eternity is concerned, Christians can be aware of sin in them, but when the Lord looks at them their sin will not be on them…they are covered by the blood! 🙂 I can’t remember which part of this series of posts it was, but in one of them I talked about the idea of turning from sin; that it not only meant striving not to sin but it also meant to turn from gazing at it and the awful pain it produces, and to look up to Jesus and be healed from that pain. 🙂

    Theresa
