Jesus wore the crown of suffering for our sake.
But Jesus also wears the crown of sovereignty, for
He is KING of KINGS, LORD of LORDS!
36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it,
like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
37 And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the
mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.
38 And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear
the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall
hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his
forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Aaron, the high priest of Israel, is a picture/symbol of Christ,
our High Priest.
Notice that Aaron was to "bear the iniquity of the holy things."
Stop and think about that a moment.
Even at our "Sunday Best" we have iniquity in our holy things!
Christ not only died to bear our sins of commission,
but also our sins of omission.
He bore, on Calvary, the iniquity of our holy things!
Iniquity in public worship:
formality, luke-warmness, irreverence, wandering of mind and
heart, and forgetfulness of God.
Even our best Sunday worship times are sometimes polluted
with wrong motives.
Iniquity in private devotions:
laxness, coldness, neglect, sleepiness, and vanity.
What a marvelous Lord and Savior!
He knew what we WERE:
hateful, spiteful, prejudicial, angry, liars, thieves and
And He knew what we WOULD BE even after justification:
lax in ourselves and legalistic toward others.
Yet Jesus died for us ANYWAY!
He wore the crown of suffering but became
VICTORIOUS over death and hell!
And, Jesus is the ONLY One Who can grant us
forgiveness of the "iniquity of holy things"!
What a mess of defilement we are!
Let us humble ourselves before our Mighty Savior,
and beg His forgiveness!
And may that action open our hearts to share the
wonderful, inexhaustible love of our Lord with others!
