2023 Day 47 – Leviticus 11-13

Our Heavenly Father wants and deserves our worship of Him.  “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:28-29)  As this passage says, we are to offer to Him “acceptable worship” which implies that worship not done according to His will would be in vain.  In the same sentence the Hebrew writer calls God a “consuming fire” which is a description also found in Deuteronomy.  “For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.” (Deuteronomy 4:24)  God showed that He fit this description when two of Aaron’s sons did something that He had not commanded.  “Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it and laid incense on it and offered unauthorized fire before the LORD, which he had not commanded them.  And fire came out from before the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD.” (Leviticus 10:1-2)  God has commanded us how to worship Him.  We must follow these commands and as Jesus told us, we must follow them while having the proper heart and mind.  “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)
