In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Leviticus 26,27; Numbers 1,2… we close out the book of Leviticus.
The book of Leviticus can seem like tedious reading, but don’t lose sight of the big picture! The purpose of the law was to show the people what was required to maintain a relationship with God. The law also showed it’s impossible to maintain a relationship with God by “being good enough”. The law pointed to the need for Jesus!
God’s mercies really ARE new every morning! He did not give up on the Hebrew people, and He will NOT give up on us.
God desires a relationship with us more than anything else from us.
