With its detailed laws and rituals, Leviticus might seem distant from everyday life. Yet, these texts find foundational principles for building a robust faith. The book underscores the holiness of God and how His people can live in a relationship with Him. Leviticus 20:7-8 (NIV) says, "Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the Lord your God. Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the Lord, who makes you holy."
By reading Leviticus, we understand the immense cost of sin, which in turn deepens our appreciation for the sacrifice of Jesus.
The attention to detail in Leviticus inspires us to be more mindful in our daily walk with God. By applying the principles of obedience and reverence found in its chapters, our faith can grow stronger and more resilient. It's about recognising the sacred in the ordinary, honouring God in the disciplined quiet of our everyday lives.
God sees the sacred in the ordinary all the time.
Lord, help me live a holy life to honour You. Amen.
