Matthew 11:28-30 in the Old Testament

While we're on the character of God in the Old Testament, I finished reading Leviticus this morning. For many of you, Leviticus is not the book that thrills your heart when you see it up next on your Bible reading plan. It's easy to get lost in the maze of sacrificial laws, mold protocol, and skin disease.

But don't miss the grace of this important book! One way to not miss it is to step back and see the big picture. This summary is a great example of that big picture. Another way is to savor the character of God revealed in Leviticus 26:1-13. I read it this morning and was SO ENCOURAGED. It's like the Matthew 11:28-30 of the Old Testament. One Story. One God. Full of grace from start to finish. Amen.
