First things first, we’ll move right along in our journey through Leviticus…. later. :) This week I’m totally throwing you off your guard and telling everyone to read Psalm 1-8 until next Friday. Is everyone breathing a sigh of relief?? I thought a break from Leviticus would be a great idea. Psalms has been on my mind lately but I’ve been diligent in reading our assigned book and not had the time to read Psalms. So Psalm 1-8 it is and I’m really looking forward to it. :)
Now for my oh-so-short review. I read it everyday. I did. I only had one thing cross my mind in my reading, and you all have mentioned it before I believe. There is no doubt that we cannot do anything to make ourselves worthy of Christ.If I get a disease, I’m out. If I get the runs, I’m out. If someone else gets the runs and I shake his hand, I’m out. If I am a woman there is a week out of every month that I would have the constant reminder of how unclean I am, and I’m out. In reading I was thinking that these guys must of listened to all these regulations and thought, “How in heaven’s name am I supposed to keep track of all this stuff!?! I’m just one big fat sin all the time!!”
I’m glad that Christ is my mediator and all is taken care of. I’m still being reminded more and more every day of the cost each one of my sins is to Him. Every thought of impatience, every reaction in anger, my laziness, my selfishness, etc… I’m just one big fat sin myself all day long.
But God is so good to me.
Okay, that was it. No big spiritual revelations today. :) I’ll look forward to reading anyone else’s. As usual, if you have a review but no blog, just email me and I’ll post it for you. Easy sneezy. :) Here’s Mr.Linky for all you bloggers who would like to take part.
I’ll apologize for the lateness in which I post. I’m a mom, and today was grocery & errand day. It’s just the way life works sometimes. :)
