If you are following our Bible Reading Plan then you are also reading through the Book of Leviticus right now. Have you noticed any loss of enthusiasm while going through this book?
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
LORD Jesus, we praise You for Your Word is Truth and a lamp unto our feet. Forgive us, O LORD, that we so often neglect to study Your Word diligently. You are the God from everlasting to everlasting. All time is in Your Hands. Hallelujah! We humbly ask that You would help us to seek You first so that we may bring honor and glory to You. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.
At the beginning of each year, reading through the Book of Genesis is so exciting. Now, reading through Exodus requires a bit more time and effort but it is all worth it. How about once we come to the Book of Leviticus? What good is all this talk about sacrifices and priestly things?
I’ll have to admit that I’m not always full of enthusiasm while reading Scripture — especially when it comes to the hard/er to understand books of the Bible. And, to be honest, I cannot offer you a three or five point recipe for success on how to read God’s Word from cover to cover. What I know, though, is that spending time with the LORD, opening the Bible and reading it is rewarding.
You might not get the meaning of a passage the first time you read it; perhaps it will take you a couple of reading sessions or even years to understand it; but rest assure that in God’s perfect timing the Holy Spirit will reveal to you what you need to know in and for that time.
Don’t give up now! Press on and keep on reading God’s Word.
