Hello,

Just wanted to say that I enjoyed Bob Deffinbaugh's article "Learning to Love Leviticus." He made some excellent points...particularly about how the book can help us understand the atonement better and about how we are such an "entertainment oriented" culture--guilty of insisting that the Word bring instant gratification.

Per the end of this article, here's what I will commit to:

"I would like to ask you to do several things as we come to the conclusion of this message. First, I would like to ask you to agree with those who have studied the Book of Leviticus carefully and have concluded that it is a book which has great value for us. I want you to agree in particular to the fact that Leviticus is inspired of God, and that it is thus profitable to you for doctrine, for correction, for training in righteousness, so that you can be equipped for every good work (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

Second, I would like for you to act on this acknowledgment. I would like you to commit yourself to study this book. That you would read it consistently, consecutively, and in large portions at a time. I ask you to ponder (meditate) its teachings and to pray that God would give you insight and understanding as to its meaning and its application in your life. Finally, I ask you to do what you have committed to do, for the glory of God, in obedience to Him, and for your good." -Deffinbaugh

Anyone else on board with me? It's more fun journeying over tough terrain with friends ; )

Yes, I can say I have fully went through Levitivus before..it's really not bad at all. Alot like Exodus but with more focus on Levitical priests and atonement.

Your comment struck a cord Mike about crying to the Lord. Do we cry out to the Lord enough? Do we get real with him and confess our hurt? I would say no. We get disappointed in our selves and wonder if this is for God or not or say we'll I'll sat nothing and when God wants a door open then he will. Instead of intentionally sharing the pain and praying specifically for favor. That is what needs to happen I believe but definitely if any we need to he honest with its God and ourselves. Amen!

If I can just be real for a second, I doubt. I'm a doubters when it comes to healing. Do I believe Jesus healed and still heals? Yes! But I've had Lymphoma for a year now and I've prayed for healing. Nothing so far; therefore, I wonder.

Baptism is an outward sign of what has happened on the inside. Our salvation. It is not necessary in ordered to be saved. Many come to the Lord on their deathbed & are not baptized. Baptism is important but doesn't effect a person's salvation.
