Today’s Reading: Leviticus 14
Key Verse: Leviticus 14:8
He who is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean. After that he shall come into the camp, and shall stay outside his tent seven days.
Read 2 Corinthians 3:14-18. When reading the Old Testament we must read through God’s prescription glasses. He has provided that when we read Scripture, looking through the Person of Jesus Christ, we are able to see with insight and understanding. The priests were given instruction in the detection of leprosy. Today’s chapter deals with the procedures for cleansing and restoration into community. Our cleansing is by the Blood of Christ (1 John 1:7). Restoration into the full fellowship of the Church, after spiritual leprosy is cleansed, is described in 2 Thess. 3:6-15.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Please help me to receive those who turn to You in repentance as You have received me. Lord Jesus, I need Your cleansing every day, and I thank You and my fellow believers for receiving me into Your Church. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
I stepped outside a few minutes ago and gazed at the sky. The stars were so very bright and the moon was front and centre. A raccoon scampered away from his breakfast on the seeds the birds had dropped from the feeder. How do I think about these things? The human brain is the most complicated organization of matter in the universe. One of our cells is more complicated than the entire man-made electric power system of Toronto. I’m not surprised that, in reading Leviticus, sometimes my eyes glaze over with incomprehension, and I feel like going back to bed. The detail in Leviticus is tough for us to handle. God is a God of infinite detail. I know that I will stick with my reading because of the grace God has given me. Lots of people give up their reading at this point. I know I’m stubborn enough to keep on keeping on.
