Christ the True Trespass-Offering
Leviticus 6:2-7
If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie to his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep…

In Christ Jesus, the true Trespass-offering, God has provided an offering after His own estimation. "Restitution," "compensation," and "expiation" — all are found in Him. When He gave His life a ransom for many, the fullest satisfaction was made to God and man. Both had been trespassed against, and both could now say, "I am satisfied. I have all back and more." As God and man had shared in the wrong inflicted by the trespass of the latter, so there is this blessed community, so to speak, in the offering by which the wrong is put away. God is glorified in "Christ crucified." A crucified Christ is our glory. "Christ is God's," and God's Christ is ours. Such is the wondrous mystery of grace displayed in the aspect of redemption furnished by the trespass-offering. Well may we exclaim with the apostle, "Oh, the depth of the riches, &c., both of the wisdom and knowledge of God — how unsearchable are His judgments, and His works past finding out," — how comforting is the assurance that one day we shall know these things as we cannot know them now.

(F. H. White.)
