February 23

Leviticus 22&23

I remember as a young girl, when faced with an invitation to do something or drink something I knew I shouldn’t… even if the argument was, “it’s harmless”, “live a little”, “everybody’s doing it”… my answer would often be, “No way! My dad would kill me if he found out.”

I loved my dad. I golfed with him, joked with him, talked to him, hugged him. I knew he loved me. But I also had a healthy fear of disobeying or disappointing him.

Leviticus 22:31-33 says: Keep my commands and follow them. I am the Lord. Do not profane my name. I must be acknowledged as holy by the Israelites. I am the Lord, who makes you holy and who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the Lord.

God must be acknowledged as holy. He wants his people to fear him. Not the cowering kind of fear that makes us shy away from his presence. But a healthy fear. One that doesn’t want to disappoint. One that realizes what my sin cost him.

Does my life acknowledge God as holy? Do I obey him out of love and respect?

Dear God, you are holy. And you’ve made me holy, too, by the blood of your Son. Help me to acknowledge you in my life so others can see you for who you really are.

      Hello to you! Thanks for your encouraging words. I do plan to stick with it as I read through the Bible this year and I pray that God will use it as he wills. And I would love to hear what God is teaching you through his Word as well. May he bless you today and make you a blessing to others.

    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this excellent blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google
    account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about
    this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

      I am humbled by your comment. As a first time blogger I am not even sure what I’m doing, except writing what God lays on my heart each day. Thank you for your encouragement. I’m still smiling at the ‘donate button’ idea. But if you’d pray for me that would be even better. God bless you, my friend.
