Guest Writer

Leviticus chapters 17, 18 and 19


I asked my mother-in-law, Pat Johns, to be a guest writer for the next couple days.  I am out of town and appreciate her love and passion for the Lord and His Word.  I hope you enjoy.  I'll see ya back here Wednesday!

 In Christ Alone 

This little studied book has an amazing message that is practical and applicable to us today.

The God who brought the children of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt kept his promised covenant, gave them his statutes and ordinances, established a priesthood and gave his people a pattern for the tabernacle where he might dwell among them.

A study of Leviticus will provide tremendous insight into how on earth we can be holy and approach the Holy of Holies to worship Him properly.

In chapter 17, God establishes the fact that there is only one place to sacrifice and only one place to worship and that is the tabernacle.

Thank God the spiritual sacrifices we offer today are not confined to just one place.  Jesus is our altar and the true tabernacle, and it is In Christ Alone that our sacrifices are acceptable to God and in Him only.

In chapter 18, God gives moral precepts...

Close and constant obedience to God's ordinances is the most effectual preservative from gross sin.

In chapter 19, there are some ceremonial laws; however most of these precepts are binding on us because they are explanations of the Ten Commandments.

Don't you just love that we need only read the experiences of actually killing a sacrifice and offering it to God?

Thank God, Jesus became our sacrifice, once and for all.

Now all we have to do is whisper His name in prayer and His blood immediately covers us for salvation, healing and deliverance.

Hallelujah....what a Savior!!!!!!

I thought the same thing, as I read through the sacrifices in Leviticus. "Thank God, Jesus became our sacrifice."

Lovely guest writing Mrs. Johns!
