If I am being honest, Leviticus is a hard read for me. The rules, so many rules. Each one could so easily be broken.
And the ceremonies, and sacrifices.
I can’t imagine not holding a dear friend’s hand as they passed. Or being expected to marry from a certain group. Or to be told that I am not good enough because of who my ancestors are.
In Hebrews 8, the author explains that the fault was not with the old covenant, but with the people, so He sent a “new” Covenant, in which the laws would be in our minds and written on our hearts. He intended to forgive our wickedness, and remember our sins no more.
The table below shows the difference from the old and new Covenants.
PRAYER: Father, thank you for the book of Leviticus, and Hebrews. Thank you for both the old and the new Covenants. They both show Your love for us. Thank you for the opportunity to be reminded that You always had a plan, and Your love is never failing. In Jesus name, Amen.
