Sermon Illustrations

We try blame b/c we can’t bear what we have done. In Hebrew Culture they had what they called a scapegoat. In Leviticus it talks about a goat that Aaron confessed all the sins of the children of Israel on the Day Atonement. The goat, symbolically bearing their sins, was then sent into the wilderness. Even then the people knew they could not bear their own sins.

Folks we can not bear our sins. Jesus Christ is our answer. We don’t pin the sin on Him but He takes it. We just have to step up and tell him “I did it.” When we confess to Jesus it is a burden that is lifted and we don’t have to blame anymore.
