We read here of our need of cleansing and of the sacrifice of a lamb as a way of removing our guilt and bringing us into peace with God (Leviticus 14:21). Spiritually, we are “poor.” What we have to bring to God is not “that much.” It is not enough to provide for our cleansing. What we need has been provided for us – “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us what we could never do for ourselves – “There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin. He only could unlock the gate of heaven and let us in.” All glory to God!
