How Is God Speaking to You? (week 7)

A number of people have joined me this year in reading through the Bible in a year together in 2011, I am dropping a blog post in here every week to give you all a chance to share how God is speaking to you through the readings, or some of the challenges or questions you are encountering as you read. This gives us the unique opportunity to keep a record together of how God speaks through the year to all of us.

So, how is God speaking to you in week seven of our journey through the  Bible?

What questions has your reading raised?

How is the daily reading going?

  1. We can see why the Law was difficult to follow. I wondered why Aaron’s two sons had to die. That must have put more fear in the people, yet Aaron continued to do the will of God. Reading Leviticus lets me know more than ever, why we needed Jesus to sacrifice His life for our sins. A sacrifice I am not worthy to deserve, only through His Grace and Mercy.
    Glad that I am reading with a contrite heart.

    • Annie,

      Thank you for sharing how God is speaking to you through Leviticus. I heartily agree with you when you say “we needed Jesus to sacrifice His life for our sins. A sacrifice I am not worthy to deserve, only through His Grace and Mercy.” Too true. I am finding that Leviticus opens me up to the weight of Christ’s sacrifice and the true freedom that I experience in life because of Him.

  2. Mark 3:33-35 “Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” A strong and stirring statement especially in such a collectivistic culture where family was first. Another one of those challenges he used to winnow the crowd. Acknowledging that in all areas of life I need to practice a ‘not what I will but what you will’ perspective.

    • Lorin,

      I appreciate you pointing out just how drastic Jesus’ statement was in His culture. It would have been almost unbearable for Him to say what He did. And yet, He is saying something powerfully inclusive to those who turn to Him in obedience. I am challenged by His invitation.
