Read the Bible Through Week 8

As I trudged through Leviticus and into Numbers, I had to continually remind myself that "All scripture is God breathed." (2 Timothy 3:16) God offered a lot of advice in these chapters on being prepared for worship and being holy. Holy is being different, set apart, and unique. God commands us to be different than society. He asks that we "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Luke 10:27) I want to be holy!

  • Leviticus 11-14: "Therefore, be holy because I am holy." (11:45) We must prepare ourselves for worship by living for God all week not just on Sunday.
  • Leviticus 15-18: God is holy. We should prepare our hearts before we pray and worship.
  • Leviticus 19-22: The Bible is not a list of rules. Jesus said to love God with all our hearts. If we love God, we want to follow His commands.
  • Leviticus 23-25: God owns everything. We are only a manger. We are taking care of His property, so make it available to others.
  • Leviticus 26-27, Numbers 1-2: God takes promises seriously. If we promise something to Him, we must fulfill that no matter the circumstances. 
  • Numbers 3-5: We can all enter the presence of God without fear. Look for ways to make wrongs right.

Next week's plan:
  • Monday, February 27: Numbers 6-9
  • Tuesday, February 28: Numbers 10-13
  • Wednesday, February 29: Numbers 14-16, Psalm 95
  • Thursday, March 1: Numbers 17-20
  • Friday, March 2: Numbers 21-24
  • Saturday, March 3: Numbers 25-28
