I must admit — Leviticus is one Old Testament book I was not looking forward to unit-reading! But we read through it this morning. Man, am I glad we are not under the Old Testament sacrificial system! There is a lot of splashing of blood and slaughtered animals and regulations and sin and guilt and fellowship offerings. Here are my notes:
A couple of takeaways for me:
1. Offerings to the Lord have an aroma which pleases Him.
2. God cares about process — sin must be dealt with!
3. God’s holiness ought to impact everything we do — what we eat, what we touch, what we look at.
4. Leviticus is clear about homosexual behavior being sin (18:22; 20:13).
My prayer: “Lord, thank You that Jesus is the end of the sacrificial system. But help me, Lord, to put You first in all things! In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
