If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie to his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep…
I. THE INJURY WROUGHT BY TRESPASS.
1. Trespass defined. Actual wrong and robbery.
2. Trespass conditioned. Might be wrought "in ignorance."
3. Trespass weighed. By the Word of God.
4. Trespass recognised (ver. 4).
II. THE REPARATION MADE FOR TRESPASS.
1. Trespass atoned.
2. Trespass compensated.
(1) Judgment inflicted.
(2) Injury compensated.
(3) Dues exceeded.There was in Christ's obedience an excess of merit presented to God, passing beyond man's demerit. And in Christian devotedness and ministry there are blessings brought to men by man far more sacred, tender, consolatory, and helpful, which more than outweigh all the injury done to men by man.
(W. H. Jellie.)
