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!
"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 8:15Galatians 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--
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.
