May 2012 Issue
Rules and regulations—we can look at them as restrictions that prevent us from doing what we want, or we can see them as guidelines that show the world who we are. Leviticus, when we look at it from a biblical, God-centered perspective, is Israel’s blueprint for building a lifestyle of holiness.
God’s people are holy because God set them apart. But we show we are holy by exemplifying God’s rules. The pages of Leviticus reveal lessons of God’s sense of holiness, the power of purification, and the celebration of God’s redemptive work of salvation from the judgment of our sins.
This month in Today in the Word we’ll examine the lessons of Leviticus to show how they teach us of God’s character, His holiness, and His plan for us. We will see how the observations of the Law set Israel apart as uniquely God’s and taught them to honor all that was uniquely His.
The Law of God is anything but outdated. We pray as you join with us in studying this rich and challenging book of Scripture that you would see the signs that point to Jesus, and that the timeless truth would make a difference in how you live for God today.
