My thoughts on the Book of Leviticus
So as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I am reading through the Bible and today, I finished the book of Leviticus. So, I just wanted to share a couple of things that I learned from this book.
So, Leviticus is a book that contains a whole lot of laws that was given by God to the people of Israel. In reading this book, the most important thing that stood out to me is the Holiness of God.
I have always known that God is holy. He is perfect. He has no speck of a speck of sin in Him. However, reading this book, my understanding of this soared to a whole ‘nother level.
I think we forget who God is a lot of the time. I am very guilty of this. I don’t think it’s intentional but I think a lot of times we fail to realise the extent of His power. God made everything. He was here before the world even began. When this earth was still full of water, God was there. He is the Living God. We should tremble at his feet. The name of God should make us fear and love and worship.
God is so gracious to us and so even when we take His name for granted, He is there to love us and forgive us.
God is the Ancient of Days. He is the Most High God. He is the I AM that I AM so, we need to learn to put some RESPECK on the name of the God who can snap his fingers in one second and this world as we know it can cease to exist.
Leviticus 10:3 says: Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord was speaking about when he said, ‘All who serve me was respect my holiness; I will reveal my glory to my people.'” But Aaron remained silent.”
God’s Holiness is unmatched and unrivalled. No one in heaven or on earth or below the earth can ever come close to being on His level.
One thing that worries me is that I don’t fear God enough and it has been my prayer to never forget the might of this Glorious God.
In this world it is easy to forget but through the grace of God and faith, I hope to always remember.
So, this is basically what was revealed to me as I read this book. God is Holy.
I am really enjoying reading the Bible and I have also been enjoying sharing it with you all. At this moment in my life – more than ever before – my spiritual life with God is the main priority and I am still learning.
I still make mistakes everyday. I still sin and honestly I am grateful for the grace and love and forgiveness that God gives because I don’t think I deserve it but that is who God is. He doesn’t love me because I am better than anyone else (because I am totally not); He loves me because that is just who He is.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this. I am starting the Book of Numbers tomorrow and I am excited about that so I’ll write on it when I’m done.
Till then my darlings. ❤
