Please read Leviticus 25:24-55 and Leviticus 26. Even in the laws, we have been able to find something valuable for life today, haven’t we? Let’s keep going strong!
Restoration, redemption, remembrance, reconciliation – God’s character is always the same toward us.
“I am your God who brought you out” (25:38 MSG)
“I am God, your personal God who rescued you” (26:13 MSG)
The blessings of obedience are just that: they are contingent on our obedience to God. The blessings of obedience are not rights which we are entitled to.
“But if you refuse to obey me and won’t observe my commandments, despising my decrees and holding my laws in contempt by your disobedience, making a shambles of my covenant, I’ll step in” (26:14-16 MSG)
Thank You, Lord, for being so kind and so generous to us always!
