Leviticus contains some of the most fundamental principles of Christianity and deals with holy living or really… becoming more Christlike.
God can articulate to you what He wants for your life – you cast the deciding vote as to whether it comes to pass or not.
Sacrifices in Leviticus were voluntary just like sacrifices are for us today. We have to decide if we are going to sacrifice our time, talents, and possessions to God or not.
The only human sacrifice we should ever put on the altar is ourselves – a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God.
Regarding our own sacrifice we have to ask ourselves:
1) Did we give God our best?
2) Did we give it to him first?
Christ’s sacrifice fulfilled Old Testament law as well as satisfied the penalty for man’s original disobedience. He paid a high price for you and me to be Christians. Are we living our lives in light of that?
