The Heart of Worship

Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.—Leviticus 19:1

The detailed procedures for sacrifices, lists of clean and unclean animals, and peculiar laws in the book of Leviticus may seem too complicated and irrelevant for us today. But as we celebrate our risen Savior this month, Leviticus will reveal Christ’s sacrifice to us through the pictures in the Old Testament. We’ll see His death and resurrection in a new way and learn to worship Him better. We pray this study will help you:

  • Be inspired to worship God in every aspect of your life
  • Understand the purpose of sacrifice, fulfilled by the atoning work of Jesus
  • Grow in holiness, to become more like Christ

Your devotional author,
Ryan J. Cook
