The Covenant of Holiness - Part 1

Listen to podcast audio:

Leviticus may not be the average Christian's favorite book of the Bible, but it has a lot to say about God's covenant promises. This week on the Press On podcast, Keith Holloway investigates the covenant of holiness between God and his people.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • The book of Leviticus was written to the people of Israel to help them transition from bondage in Egypt to serving, worshiping, and obeying God.

  • Jesus said he will reveal himself to those who have, know, and obey his word.

  • The covenant of holiness between God and us, his people, is to be a witness and impact the world.

  • As New Covenant believers we no longer make Old Covenant sacrifices and offerings, but we are called to participate in spiritual disciplines like study, prayer, tithing and evangelism.

  • God’s laws and commands are meant to demonstrate his holiness and when we keep them, we are living out the holiness we have through Christ.

  • As followers of Jesus, we are called to be holy, in both our character and conduct, as he is holy.
