Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. Leviticus 25:18 It was a call to trust God, not some deal to pay them back for obedience. God laid out plans for them not to plant crops every seven years. Growing up on a farm I know the importance of...

Do not offer to the Lord the blind, the injured or the maimed, or anything with warts or festering or running sores. Leviticus 22:22 Yes, I get bogged down in the reading of Leviticus, but there is also much I learn from it. One might think God to be harsh in the reading (stoning blasphemer in...

I am the Lord your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground. Leviticus 11:44 Clean or unclean—God does not leave much wiggle room. It seems to me one would always have to wonder which they were...

Leviticus 8-10, John 15:1-11

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. John 15:1-2 I am not sure what all was going on in Leviticus 8-10, but I know our relationship with God...
