He Came to Me

Daily Reading: Leviticus 14

Scripture Focus: And the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall look... (Leviticus 14.3a)

Devotional Thought: In Leviticus 14, we continue with some exciting stuff about the cleansing of infections and uncleanness – in lepers and in houses! Once again, if we are not aware of it, we can miss the grace of God in these instructions. I especially like what we read in Leviticus 14.3. God takes the initiative, instructing the priest to "go out of the camp and... look." The suffering saint is seen as one who - due to his illness - is shut out from the normal associations of life. He cannot even come to the place of atonement. That's OK. The atonement will go to him!


That reminds me of our Jesus! Jesus left the safety, glory and joy of heaven to deliver us from our danger, gloom, and despair. He left the health of heaven to take our sickness. He left the holiness of heaven to come and take our sin away. The Atonement came to us! Praise be to the name of the Lord!


Do you know the old gospel song, "He Came to Me" by Squire Parsons? Consider these words and praise our Savior:


“He came to me, O, He came to me.

When I could not come to where He was, He came to me.

That's why He died on Calvary,

When I could not come to where He was, He came to me.


He came to me when I was bound in chains of sin,

He came to me when I possessed no hope within,

He picked me up and He drew me gently to His side,

Where, today, in His sweet love I now abide.”


Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, that as our great High Priest you came to me! I was bound in the disease of sin, but you came to me and set me free! Hallelujah!

Psalm of the Day: 19 They made a calf in Horeb and worshiped a metal image. 20 They exchanged the glory of God for the image of an ox that eats grass. 21 They forgot God, their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, 22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. 23 Therefore he said he would destroy them-- had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them. (Psalms 106:19-23)
