Over the next few weeks, we will continue to be focused on the purpose of this blog as we continue to use it in helping us to apply His Word in our life. I’ve found it to be a great tool in my journey through the Bible and you, my readers are keeping me accountable to daily Bible reading and study.
We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.
Here is a link to all the devotionals done so far
Anyone can join in as we journey together.
The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Leviticus over the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day amazing!
Questions for Reflection
In what ways are the laws of purity for priests stricter than for the congregation? When do your daily activities conflict with what God demands of you to be holy? How do you resolve the conflict? Why? What physical characteristics disqualify Aaron’s descendants for serving at the altar? Why, do you think?
What types of uncleanness (Chapters 11-15) disqualify a normally qualified priest for serving at the altar? What types of thoughts and actions prevent you from coming into God’s presence? How can you be clean?
What offerings and activities are involved in the annual feasts observed by the Israelites? What attitudes toward God underlie the feast celebrations? In what ways do you remember and celebrate God’s care for you?
What are the daily rituals of Aaron? What is the sin of Shelomith’s son? What do you learn about God’s justice from the general law he gives in verses 18-21?
What are the attitudes which the Israelites are to show toward their neighbor? What should be your attitude toward your personal property? The poor? What are the concepts of rest, liberty, and redemption? In what ways do these concepts relate to the Sabbath? To the jubilee years?
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
