Lev. 14:33 – Lev. 26:26

Sanctify: To set apart as or declare holy; consecrate.

We were made to be different!

How many times in today’s reading were the people told to be different? All throughout the reading we read things like, you shall do this, and you shall do that. God was telling Moses that we are made to be different. The way it is written sets it up perfectly. Chapter 19 of Leviticus starts out with a section that says The Lord Is Holy. Then one chapter later we are told “You Shall Be Holy”. In that section he tells us to be different.  “And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation that I am driving out before you, for they did all these things and therefore I detested them. But I have said to you, you shall inherit their land, ….. I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples.” So as we go throughout our day, as believers we need to remember that we were made to be different. We were made to tell people the Good News, and what better way than to show them how God wants us to live.

1 Corinthians 6:11
“Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”

  1. Again, I must be completely transparent. I struggled reading this portion of Scripture. I have a hard enough time remembering where I put my cell phone, let alone trying to remember all the things I shouldn’t do or say. There would not have been enough sacrifices to atone my sins, which isn’t that the entire point of the Gospel. For without the sacrifice of Jesus, there would be no need for the Cross. Praise God!
