Discussion Starters for The Heart of Worship

  • April 2023 Issue
Discussion Starters

We hope these questions will help you consider (or discuss with others) what God is teaching you through this month’s study of His Word.


  1. What were you saved from? What are you saved for? (see Day 1)
  2. What was the purpose of sacrificing an animal to God? What were the requirements for this sacrifice (see Day 2)
  3. The more responsibility a person had, the greater the size of their sin offering was needed. Why was this? What implications does this have for those of us in leadership positions? (see Day 5)
  4. What do the sacrifices in ancient Israel teach us about the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross? What connections do you see? (see Day 6)


  1. Why were Aaron’s sons killed? What did they do wrong? (see Day 9)
  2. How does your belief in God influence practical things, like what you eat, wear, or spend your free time on? (see Day 11)
  3. What did the words “clean” and “unclean” mean in Leviticus? Are they still useful distinctions today? Why or why not? (see Day 13)
  4. How and when should we welcome someone back to the Christian community after they have sinned or left? (see Day 14)


  1. How is this study changing your definition or understanding of “blood”? Why do you think blood is such an important symbol in the Bible? (see Day 16)
  2. How was God’s view of marriage and sexuality countercultural for Israel? How is God’s view of this topic countercultural for us today? (see Day 17)
  3. How do you react to the consequences for sin outlined in Leviticus 20? What does this teach us about God’s view of sin? (see Day 20)
  4. Why were priests held to a higher standard than everyone else? How did they compare to Jesus, who Hebrews describes as our high priest? (see Day 21)


  1. When we worship, what should be our focus? How do we know if worship is successful or not? (see Day 22)
  2. How does our practice of the Sabbath differ from the Old Testament view? What can we learn from this practice and apply to our lives? (see Day 23)
  3. Why do you think God instituted a “sabbath year” for His farming people? How could we put this into practice in our own lives? How can we make it a habit of remembering that everything we have is a gift from God? (see Day 26)
  4. What did studying Leviticus teach you about God? About sin? About church? About yourself?
