Leviticus: Holiness

by Luke Aadalen
Route 66 week three message from Pastor Luke Aadalen on February 17, 2019 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. • The book of Leviticus contains a theme that is one of the fundamental principles of Christianity • That Theme: Holiness Leviticus 19:2 • Outline: 1. The Rules for Sacrifice (Ch. 1-7) 2. The Rules for the Priesthood (Ch. 8-10) 3. The Rules for Purity (Ch. 11-16) 4. The Rules for Holiness (Ch. 17-27) The rules that were then are different than now, but our God still requires holiness in the lives of those in whom he dwells. That can be said this way: God Lives with Holy People. • God is ____________ Point One: God is HOLY • Seeing God as: 1. Separate 2. Set Apart 3. Different\Distinct 4. Pure Leviticus 11:44-45 Leviticus 19:2 Leviticus 20:26 Point Two: God insists that you and I be HOLY • The Why’s: 1. Because God saved us out of unholiness 2. Because God will not live with unholy people 3. Because God insists on holy worship 4. Because God insists on holy living Leviticus 18:1-5 Leviticus 10:1-2 Point Three: God himself will make you HOLY • Three Steps: Step One: Come to Him through the BLOOD Leviticus 17:11 1 John 1:7 Step Two: CONFESS your unholiness Psalm 139:23-24 1 John 1:9a Step Three: God CLEANSES us • Leviticus 21:15, 23; 22:9, 16 1. “For I am the Lord, who sanctifies them.” 1 John 1:9b • God does the dirty work • He picks us up, brushes us off, cleans us up • The process still begins with God – only he can make us holy • This is how Jesus came and FULFILLED the law – not abolished • We have a part to play – but what I don’t want you to think is that we really have anything to do with this • God just says come – come to me • I will forgive, I will cleanse, I will give you rest • Build your life on me – lean on me • It’s not complicated – just come, confess your need, and let me handle the heavy lifting – because I am holy, I will make you holy
