Lame

Leviticus 21:18 (c) Undoubtedly the lame man in this passage is a type of the Christian or the professing Christian who does not walk in a straight path and in fellowship with GOD. Such a one would not be suitable as a servant of the Lord, or a leader of the people.

Deuteronomy 15:21 (c) The sacrifice that is offered to the Lord must be perfect. Every sacrifice which man offers outside of CHRIST is defective, and cannot stand divine inspection. CHRIST alone is the only perfect sacrifice.

2 Samuel 9:3 (c) Many evangelists use this figure as a type of all sinners. Everybody is lame on the feet in a spiritual sense. The walk is not what it should be. The ways of men are not perfect and godly as they should be. We therefore receive "the kindness of God," the feet are put under the table out of sight, while we sit at the King's banquet, and enjoy His fellowship after the King accepts us.

Proverbs 26:7 (b) Our Lord is describing to us the fact that we naturally go wrong and walk in a crooked path. Very few men, if any, can walk in a straight path where the footprints can be seen, as in the snow. One leg is longer than the other. All of us are lame in the spiritual sense. It is a natural thing with everybody.

Isaiah 33:23 (c) Here is a very beautiful way of telling us that those who realize their weakness and their insufficiency are usually those who come to GOD for help and receive from Him the blessings He gives.

Hebrews 12:13 (b) Men are not always strong and vigorous in their spiritual life. Some are weak Christians and stumble along the way instead of being able to stand for the faith, resisting the enemy. We are called upon to so walk, live, act and talk that weak Christians will be strengthened in their faith and made to stand strong for the Lord.
