Leviticus: How to Live in God's Presence
God has given us a priceless gift— grace, salvation, and the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. How should this gift change our thoughts and behaviors? Studying the rules and laws taught in Leviticus, even though we no longer need to follow each specific one, can help us better understand the magnitude of the gift we’ve received in Jesus Christ and reflect on how to live in the presence of a holy God who chooses to live among us in Christ and through the Holy Spirit. In this Groundwork series, we’ll examine the book of Leviticus to discover its relevance and value for Christians and the church yet today.

Another major theme found in Leviticus is God’s instruction to Israel to care for the aliens...the immigrants...the strangers living in their midst. Studying these teachings, in the light of our salvation in Christ, can inform our thoughts and behaviors toward non-Christians and vulnerable people in our world today.
