“The LORD commanded this to be given to them by the children of Israel, on the day that He anointed them, by a statue forever through their generations.”
The LORD still has commands for us to follow today and desires us to follow them! We will always be better off when we do!
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.”
Realize the commands the LORD gives us are fairly simple to keep, but do we?
“Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God is one.”
And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment.”
Most of us get really distracted with other things going on around us that we can and do forget about the LORD! Just reading this chapter in Leviticus 7, I was distracted and was not looking to the LORD only!
“And the second, like it, is this; You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”
And as my neighbor was walking by making lots of noise, I was complaining! My point and hopefully encouraging thought is; walking with the LORD takes a bit of effort on our part! When we read through Leviticus, let us be thankful we don’t have to sacrifice and make sin offerings to the LORD, but instead we get to love Him, learn from Him and walk with Him; that can be hard enough! Let us be that living sacrifice like ROMANS 12:1 says a reasonable service! May the LORD bless your day!
