Leviticus 15 has to do with everything being seen and done with a view toward God’s love and plan. 

Response

Oh! Wow! You God are concerned about our health.

Prayer

Lord thank You for caring about our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. In Christ Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.

Leviticus 16 has to do with instructions for the altar. From my Bible’s notes: Old Testament sacrifices could not actually remove sins, only cover them.  Aaron had to spend hours preparing himself to meet God. 

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord I pray we will prepare to meet You.

Something to think about

From my Bible’s notes: We can approach God anytime. We are offered easier access to God than the high priest of Old Testament times.  We must not forget that God is holy. We must not let the privilege of easier access to Him cause us to approach God carelessly.  Easy access to God does not eliminate our need to prepare our hearts as we draw near in prayer.

Prayer

Lord I pray we will approach Your throne of grace, the throne of Your gracious favor, with confidence and without fear so that we may receive mercy for our failures and find Your amazing grace to help us in time of need (Hebrews 4:16). In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.

Leviticus 17 has to do with sacrifices and the ingesting of blood.

Response

Oh! Wow! Christ Jesus shed His blood to cleanse us from sin.

Something to think about

From my Bible’s notes: God prohibited the eating or drinking of blood for several reasons. (1) To discourage pagan practices.  Israel was to be separated and distinct from the foreign pagan practices. The pagans ate the blood in hopes of gaining the strength of certain animals. God’s people were to rely on Him, not on ingesting blood for strength; (2) To preserve the symbolism of the sacrifice of Jesus’ blood; (3) To protect the people from infection because many deadly diseases are transmitted through the blood.

Something to experience

When we ask Jesus into our life we are symbolically taking His blood into our body to cover our sins.

Prayer

Lord I pray we will indeed believe in Your Son Christ Jesus as our Savior  and believe in the saving power of His blood which was shed for us.  Thank You for giving us Christ Jesus as our Bread of Life and our Living Water.  I pray we will receive Christ Jesus into our body and remain with Him and He will remain with us (John 6:53-56).  In His name I pray.  AMEN.
