Listen to this morning’s Scripture Song – Psalm 47 and verse 1
Read the “0212 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
This particular time in history referenced in Leviticus seems like a very stressful time to be alive. Maybe the rest of you are strict rule followers, but If I lived in this day in age, I believe I would be always looking over my shoulder, not because I was trying to be disobedient to the law, but because there were just so many laws to follow. Laws about sacrifice, about holy days; laws about finance and even laws about how and when to harvest your crops. Could you ever follow so many rules? You better try because if you don’t you could be stoned.
The whole passage to me seemed overwhelming and even morbid until I recognized that doing away with an overwhelming number of laws would take an overwhelming amount of grace. Grace that only the Lord Jesus could provide. Being saved from big sin takes grace from a big God. We really are spoiled to live in this “grace” age. We don’t have to fear being stoned for our sins, and we don’t have to rely on a priest to have access to God.
So, are we so subpar with our Christian walk? I pray today that the Lord would continually remind me of His mercy and grace, and that I would take advantage of the absolute privilege that it is to walk with Him in the gift of His salvation.
