Leviticus 22:17-23:44

Twice in today’s reading God opens up His ordinances and the blessings that come along with following His commands, to those who are not his people, "Give Aaron and his sons and all the Israelites these instructions, which apply to those who are Israelites by birth as well as to the foreigners living among you.” (22:18) In the 22nd verse of chapter 23 foreigners are included with the poor as benefactors of the grain deliberately left in the field. God has always allowed for those who were not His people to benefit from the “crumbs” from those who were and are His people as we read Saturday in the Gospel reading (Mark 7:28) What a mighty God we serve!!

What I really like about today’s reading is that it shows how our God is a God who loves parties. He want’s His people to not only reverence and obey Him He wants them to have a good time in doing it. There are lots of “feasts” and sacred assemblies, food and more food. God wants us to celebrate Him and who we are in Him. So Christian, please don’t walk around with a long face, shout Hallelujah from time to time because we serve a God that enjoys our enjoyment of all the things He has done for us.

Grace and peace,
Ramona

Psalm 44:3 was so powerful. We cannot even count all the blessings we have on our everyday life. Nothing is done because our personal power or knowledge. God is so powerful. Just look at the breath we have everyday. He is merciful, merciful.... I feel it everyday and time..

Have a blessing day.

I try to follow the Christian year order that many churches will also practice to various degrees. It gives yearly order to our formation with Christ incarnate in his ministry death, burial, resurrection and coming again through Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Pentecost. Unfortunately, I don’t think we are as “festive” as the Levitical People but we can become a counter cultural witness and have opportunity to draw closer to Jesus at these times through the year.

I like how Ramona caught the ordinances and blessings God allowed for those "others".
