We are noticing that Leviticus 17-24 is the section where God commands holy living. Their holy living comes from the fact that atonement had been made for them (Leviticus 16). God is holy. Therefore, for his people to remain in fellowship with him, they must also be holy. God is bringing about their holiness by giving them directions on how to live so they do not experience the wrath of God. Please consider how God’s laws are the grace of God. God’s demonstrates his love and tells us how to remain in his kingdom, enjoying his blessings. As we continue to look at God’s rules for Israel regarding holy living, we will continue to learn about God’s character, his expectations for his people, and what this all means for us in Christ.
