Becoming Wise hearted | Jesus in their midst | Gold on the Inside and Out
SURPRISE! THERE’S A FIELD TRIP HIDDEN IN THIS VIDEO. But first, we’ll start by talking about the children of Israel. Some say Exodus was Israel’s introduction to a God who rescues, delivers, and redeems. It was the beginning of a process of becoming set apart as a peculiar people. Leviticus then sets out the provisions for what becoming a holy people will look like. Have you ever wondered what a holiness code might look like? This week in Come, Follow Me we will be studying Exodus 35-40 and Leviticus 1; 16; 19.
THE Book of Exodus was intended to tell how the Lord God redeemed and set apart for Himself “a peculiar people.”
The book of Leviticus…For the provisions and the means of grace must be accepted and used by those for whom they are designed, and the “setting apart” of the people by Jehovah implied, as it’s converse, consecration on the part of Israel.”
To sum up its general contents — it tells us in its first Part (1-16.) how Israel was to approach God, together with what, symbolically speaking, was inconsistent with such approaches; and in its second Part (17-27.) how, having been brought near to God, the people were to maintain, to enjoy, and to exhibit the state of grace of which they had become partakers.
“Thirty years’ experience has taught me that every moment of my life must be holiness to the Lord, resulting from equity, justice, mercy and uprightness in all my actions, which is the only course by which I can preserve the Spirit of the Almighty to myself.”
