Loving Leviticus. Adoring Abba. Rejoicing in the torn veil. -    "Only one life, twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last" 
 
These are just a few things that have been on my mind and heart lately. 

Leviticus- As some of you know, I have been going through the book of Leviticus in my quiet time. I pray that your thoughts toward that book are not the same as mine were. Originally I had sinful thoughts about it. It wasn't that I dreaded or disliked it, but that I looked at it like I look at a slightly enjoyable school book. "This is somewhat interesting, but lets just get it over with, and move on to the next one". God had different intentions for me. I learned more about Him in Leviticus than I did in Mark. Not that I can rate the books of the Bible, but my point is that it is a living book. It's a living book and that God can do whatever He wants with whatever tool He wants. I learned so much about His holiness in those twenty-seven chapters. Praise His for His Word!

Picture
Abba! Father!-- "For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry,"Abba! Father!" Romans 8:15

Galatians 4:1-7

Ahh adoption is such a glorious doctrine...but I'm going to let the Scriptures defend the Scriptures and not even attempt to explain it. (Or you could listen to my pastor/Dad explain it--http://www.basswoodchurch.org/resources/sermons The sermon on the eighteenth of April)
How I thank Him that I can call Him Father! It may seem negligible at first, but think about it! A completely holy God Who is absolutely Just became sin and satisfied the wrath..but not only do I have his imputed righteousness, but He is my Father and I can call Him Abba! How can I keep from singing?!

The Veil-- Exodus 26:31-33
                Matthew 27:51
                Hebrews 10:19-22

The Presence of God. The Presence of God was made available through the cross of Christ and all I can do is fall on my face and worship.

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life


    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
