• Holiness and Justice Devotional

    Leviticus 10:1–3

    Many people complain that the doctrine of election is unfair and deny it because they think fairness demands that we all have the ability to believe the gospel. But if we are sinners, the one thing God would be fair to do would be to condemn us all to hell. It is only by grace that anyone is rescued from eternal damnation, so we should be grateful that the Lord is sovereign in salvation. Let us never fail to give Him thanks for choosing to redeem the undeserving. View Resource

  • Holiness and Justice Devotional

    Leviticus 10:1–3

    From delaying Adam’s eternal death after he sinned to the grace shown the church today, it is clear our Father gives mercy to the unworthy. But we must never use this grace as a license to sin or believe we deserve it, for if we do, we have ceased to understand what mercy truly is. If you are stuck in a sin that is overwhelming you, find help to overcome it. If not, help keep another accountable, reminding him that God’s patience is for our repentance (Rom. 2:4). View Resource

  • The Regulative Principle Devotional

    Leviticus 10:1–3

    Even within the Reformed tradition, where the regulative principle is highly esteemed, there is disagreement as to how it should be applied. But adherents to the regulative principle agree that human beings are not free to introduce things into worship that have no biblical warrant. Worship should be reverent, structured according to God’s commands so that we do not endanger ourselves by approaching our holy Creator in an unholy manner. View Resource

  • Reverent Worship Devotional

    Leviticus 10:1–3

    Strikingly absent from much of Christian worship today is an atmosphere of reverence that takes God seriously and seeks to glorify Him according to His Word. Much of this is due to the fact that we have downplayed the holiness of God and the lordship of Christ in the covenant community. As you attend worship, endeavor to remember who God is and to approach Him with reverent thanks for His goodness to you. View Resource

  • Sanctification Demanded Devotional

    Leviticus 10:1–11

    John Calvin, in his commentary on today’s passage, notes how many people might view the Lord’s treatment of Nadab and Abihu as overly harsh. Yet, he writes, “If we reflect how holy a thing God’s worship is, the enormity of the punishment will by no means offend us.” We ignore the prescriptions of God at our peril, so may we be ever aware of what He requires and quick to repent when we rebel against His holy Word.
