Distinguo

When we read the laws about cleanness and uncleanness in Leviticus, we tend to take away only one point - we no longer have to abide by those old rules. But we cannot read the words of the New Testament without quickly realizing that there must be more to it than that.

Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)

It is just as important for us as it was for Aaron and his sons to "distinguish between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean" (Lev 10:10).

Distinguish. Make proper distinctions. Understand right order.

We have said often that worship drives culture. This is why.

Join us this Lord's Day to dive into the significance of those old cleanness laws in Leviticus.
