We are so excited to be reading in Leviticus for the Team Hally Bible Study.This book of the Bible shows us just how much Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross means for us as believers today. Before Jesus came to earth, when the people sinned, God required a blood sacrifice and a priest to pay the penalty for their sins. Leviticus explains the different types of sacrifice, and in detail, the requirements for the sinner as well as for the priest. Jesus changed ALL of these requirements for everyone! He took all of the sins of every person upon His shoulders so that we have a way to His Father and He became the only sacrifice needed. Hebrews 7:27 says, “He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for His own sins and then for those of the people, since He did this once for all when He offered up Himself.”
If you haven’t started Leviticus yet, just jump in on the current day, pray for God to speak to you, and read through the chapter. Choose a verse that stands out to you, write that verse (along with a prayer) in a journal, and then share what you are learning with someone close to you.
We will continue reading through the next five books of the Old Testament (Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges and Ruth) until November. The reading takes about fifteen minutes each day and will allow you to learn more about the God who loves you so much and desires to spend time with you every day!
We’re praying that each of you will join the Team Hally Bible Study!
