Leviticus is one of the most neglected books of the Bible, yet it is among the most powerful. At first glance, it might seem like just a list of rules, of all God’s dos and don’ts. But if you take a closer look, you’ll find it full of rich insights, for this book establishes the guidelines by which God is to be known and worshiped.
 
Leviticus is a book about holiness.
 
Leviticus is a book about holiness. In its pages you’ll come to understand the difference between the profane, the common, and the holy. Here’s an illustration that might help make the distinction clear. When you have dirty dishes in your sink, they are profane. That is, they are unacceptable to use until they have been cleaned. Profane things in our lives are completely unacceptable to God because they bring dirt before Him. The common dishes, by contrast, are those we use every day. There’s nothing wrong with them; they just aren’t special. And when we treat God as merely common, we aren’t holding Him in the high regard His holiness deserves and demands.
 
Think about what’s holy in relation to the china dishes secured behind the glass doors in the hutch in the dining room. These are the ones we only bring out on special occasions or for honored guests. Leviticus teaches us how to treat God—the Holy One who is like no other. We are to relate to God and worship Him as our unique, one-of-a-kind Lord, and King of His kingdom.

He deserves only the best.
