2/10/19 Clean or Unclean?

Today’s Deeply Rooted Devotion is from Leviticus 11-14.

Highlighted Verse(s):

” But as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16, ESV

Devotion:

The word clean in these chapters means “able to approach God in worship,” and unclean means “unable to approach God in worship.” The laws about food and skin diseases were partly addressed hygiene. They were also partly symbolizing the unique relationship Israel had with God. The main point of these chapters is God’s holiness and the care in which we must have when we approach Him in worship.

1 Peter 1:15 tells us to be holy in our conduct because God, who has saved us or called us, is holy. How are you walking with the Lord, in clean or unclean? Holy or unholy?
