Friday, February 10th: Leviticus 8-10; Matthew 25:31-46 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Leviticus 8-10; Matthew 25:31-46

In our OT passage today we see a stark reminder of the holiness of God and that sin is not something to trifle with.  As a parent, I can only imagine the devastation Aaron must have felt as he watched his sons fall under the judgment of God, and then not being allowed to publicly mourn for them.

Truly, only by God's grace and mercy is our fate any different. If we got what we deserved, if life was fair, we would receive judgment!

As we see in our NT passage, when we receive that unmerited grace, our lives will prove our faith genuine. If our actions do not do so, our false profession of faith will be revealed for what it really is and the judgment that will follow will be deserved.

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

Badab and Ahibu received eternal death for offering an authorized fire before the Lord. The fire motions were most likely the same as other burnt offerings before the Lord in which He was pleased, but their motives were wrong.

We too, will receive eternal death if our hearts are not right with God. Simply going through the motions and performing tasks correctly does not mean we will inherit the Kingdom of God.
