“For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. It is a Sabbath of solemn rest for you, and you shall afflict your souls. It is a statute forever.” Leviticus 16:30-31

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” Leviticus 17:11

Our great day of atonement is that on which Christ shed His blood for us on the cross, and thereby made atonement for us. If it was necessary for the Israelites to afflict their souls and chastise their bodies on their great day of atonement, how much more might we to pray for humility and repentance, as the evidence of our interest in the atoning sacrifice made by Christ Jesus! And as they abstained from all labor on that day, when the High Priest alone was employed, so should we abstain from all our sinful works, and particularly from all self-sufficiency of righteousness, and seek our salvation only in the meritorious blood of atonement shed by our High Priest — for the life of our souls is in the blood of Jesus.

O my Redeemer! May I, with an afflicted soul, ever seek my atonement, life, and salvation, in Your blood and death. And may I lie down and rise up in a comfortable hope that I am pardoned through Your blood, Your Spirit bearing witness of it to my conscience. Spirit of God, sprinkle the blood of Jesus on my conscience this day!
