Leviticus can be a Bible reading stopper, but not with Loving Leviticus. Leviticus mentions holiness more than any other book in the Bible. The feasts described in the book strongly shape the Christian church’s celebrated holidays today. The whole book is about how Israel can have a relationship with a holy God. It defines what it means to be a holy people of a holy God. The theme is a deeper unfolding of the divine-human relationship between God and man. Enjoy the most holy book in the Holy Bible. This 57-page devotion takes you through Leviticus a chapter a day for twenty-seven days.
Comment. Why did God get so specific on their sacrifices, and the fat, lobe of liver, blood, how to kill the animal, which way to throw certain things? Why is death the reminder of God? Lay your hands on the animal and slaughter it. Smoke offerings to God, a sweet aroma? I realize when sin entered into the world, death came with it. Are all these deaths a constant reminder of our sinful nature and the need for atonement – for sin? One thing for sure, when God appears, they shouted and fell on their faces. We will do the same.
Prayer. Father, we give You thanks for outlining a process of forgiveness of sin here in Leviticus brought to complete fruition with Jesus, Your Son, on the cross at Calvary. As sinners, we can be thankful for a process to atone for our sins. Thank You for the greatest gift on earth, the forgiveness of sin. To God be the glory. Great things You have done. Amen.
