• Profane Oaths Devotional

    Leviticus 19:12

    Consider today whether you are a person of your word. Can your friends and family count on you to keep your commitments? If you consistently fail to keep your promises, then take better care to decide whether or not the promises you make can realistically be kept. It is better not to make promises than it is to promise and then fail to keep them. Let us make only promises that we are realistically able to fulfill. View Resource

  • Firstfruits and Pentecost Devotional

    Leviticus 23:9–22

    Paul says Jesus was raised for our justification (Rom. 4:25), and so we often celebrate Jesus’ resurrection as proof that our sins have been fully atoned for and that we are now declared righteous in God’s sight. This is entirely appropriate, but we should also remember that our Lord’s resurrection is proof positive that we who trust in Him will be raised in like manner at the last day and dwell with Him bodily in a new heaven and earth.

  • The Feast of Trumpets Devotional

    Leviticus 23:23–25

    As we will see, Christians are waiting for the Feast of Trumpets to be fulfilled in its entirety. But Christ the Lamb of God has come and by His death has inaugurated the last days, which comprise the entire period between His first and second coming. Since we are now in the last days, the call to spread the good news of salvation is more urgent than ever, so let us preach the gospel to friends and family before the final trumpet blows.

  • The Feast of Booths Devotional

    Leviticus 23:33–43

    At each Feast of Booths, the Israelites gave up the comforts of their homes in order to commemorate God’s salvation. This is a reminder that in order to be redeemed, the people of the Lord must surrender certain things. We must give up self-reliance and selfishness. We must turn from our idols and the “comforts of our sin.” Unless we repent, turning from such things unto the Redeemer, we cannot be saved. View Resource

  • The Penalty for Blasphemy Devotional

    Leviticus 24:10–16

    The issue of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is a difficult one, but commentators agree that we have not committed this sin if we feel remorse and want God to forgive us. Only those whose hearts have been completely hardened against God and His grace have committed this sin, but we cannot determine whether this has happened in a person’s heart. Thus, we hold forth the hope of forgiveness and call people to repent until their deaths make repentance impossible. View Resource

  • Our Kinsman Redeemer Devotional

    Leviticus 25:23–28

    We are accustomed to thinking of a sibling or a parent as our closest relative. For those who are in Christ, however, Jesus is our closest relative, our closest kinsman who paid our debt when we could by no means pay it ourselves. This willingness to pay the price for our salvation is evidence of His great love for us, love that He showed when we were unlovely. We must therefore love Him more than our spouses, siblings, parents, or children. View Resource

  • Our Kinsman Redeemer Devotional

    Leviticus 25:23–28

    Jesus has paid the moral debt we owed to the Father for breaking the law of God. He was not obligated to pay this debt, and the Father was not obligated to accept this payment. But in their great love and mercy, they agreed to redeem us in order that we might receive an inheritance. Rejoice in the love and mercy that motivated Christ’s atonement. View Resource

  • Covenant Blessings Devotional

    Leviticus 26:1-13

    The book of Job and other portions of Scripture warn us about making a strict one-to-one correlation between the blessings or trials we receive and our obedience to God. Nevertheless, we can expect the Lord to show His favor to us when we keep His covenant and seek to obey His Word. We do this not to earn our redemption but to thank Him for saving us from our sin. Are you striving to obey the Lord and receive His blessing? View Resource

  • Covenant Curses Devotional

    Leviticus 26:14-39

    Just as the Lord sent covenant curses on the old covenant church to call it to repentance, He will also allow His new covenant church to feel trouble as a means of disciplining us for our sin. We cannot equate every hardship that we face with the Lord’s hand of chastisement, but when God allows us to suffer the consequences of our sin, He is disciplining us and calling us to return to Him. May we always heed this call. View Resource

  • The Threat of Exile Devotional

    Leviticus 26:14-39

    Though it may be painful at times, God’s discipline is one of the greatest blessings that we have as His children. He chastises us when we sin that we might continually turn to Him, proving the reality of our faith and providing us assurance that we will not endure the final exile. Do you look at our Father’s discipline as a blessing or a curse? It is far better to experience firm discipline in this life than to escape it and end up exiled forever. View Resource

  • God’s Promise of Restoration Devotional

    Leviticus 26:40-45

    There are consequences for disobeying the Lord, but He also promises to restore all sinners who turn to Him in faith, no matter what they have done. Until Christ returns or death occurs, whichever comes first, there is always hope that sinners can turn from their wickedness and begin to experience restoration in Jesus. We should never be afraid to pray for the salvation of those who seem the most far gone. View Resource

  • The Hope of Restoration Devotional

    Leviticus 26:40-45

    God’s grace to His people in the restoration is shown in two primary ways. First, He provides His Son to fulfill perfectly all the requirements needed for Him to restore all creation. Second, He elects a people to salvation, guaranteeing that they will repent and believe in Him, thereby ensuring that His promises will be kept. As the gospel goes forth and people repent and believe, God is restoring His creation and will consummate it in the new heaven and earth. View Resource
