Sunday School-Read the Bible Through Week 7

God gave Moses specific orders of how to build the tabernacle, perform sacrifices, and prepare for worship. Aaron and his sons did "everything the Lord commanded." Do we do everything the Lord commands of us? Since God sent his son, Jesus, as the ultimate sacrifice, it is no longer necessary for us to perform these rituals. However, God still commands us to do things-spread the Gospel, love one another, repent our sins, give to those in need, etc. God wants use to follow Him completely.

Here is a summary of last week's readings:
  • Exodus 29-32: We worship the creator and sustainor of the universe. Don't rush into worship and treat it as casual. God cannot work in us when we elevate things above Him.
  • Exodus 33-36: No matter what your talent is, use it for God's glory.
  • Exodus 37-40: God is concerned about the big and little details. Talk to Him about all your concerns no matter how unimportant they seem. If God tells you to do something, do it right and completely.
  • Leviticus 1-4: Although Jesus' death was the final sacrifice, we must sill confess our sins before God. They will be forgiven.
  • Leviticus 5-7: When we are aware that God lives in us, we can be confident that He will forgive and restore us.
  • Leviticus 8-10: Spiritual cleansing comes only from God. Serve God in your daily routines. Follow His instructions thoroughly. 
Next week's plan is:
  • Monday, February 20: Leviticus 11-14
  • Tuesday, February 21: Leviticus 15-18
  • Wednesday, February 22: Leviticus 19-22
  • Thursday, February 23: Leviticus 23-25
  • Friday, February 24: Leviticus 24-25, Numbers 1-2
  • Saturday, February 25: Numbers 3-5
I encourage you to read the Bible through in a year. If you have not started the plan yet, that is OK. Pick up with this week's readings. Do not try to catch up. You will find more information about the reading plan {here}.
