Today you should read: Numbers 28:1-15
Before describing the ever so important Passover Offering, God shared with Moses specific instructions on food offerings, drink offerings, and burnt offerings that consisted either every day, week, or year. They are described as a “pleasing aroma” to the Lord when done with a right heart, the right way, in which God asked.
In fact, the pleasing, or soothing aroma is a phrase that usually describes the effect of our sacrifices toward God and how it soothes his anger at sin. These offerings were important as it not only appeased God in the moment but points us to what Jesus’ sacrifice does for our sins once and for all, appeasing God’s wrath for our sin by what He did on the cross as He took the penalty we deserved upon Himself.
This is even better represented in what you will read tomorrow with the Passover offering. Let us never forget the powerful purpose of these offerings and how they foreshadowed the Gospel of Jesus.
