The Covenant of Holiness - Part 2

Listen to podcast audio:

In the Old Testament, ancient Israel was tasked with setting a good example. They were meant to demonstrate how the one true God was different than the idols worshipped by surrounding nations. In the second episode of this two-part series, Keith Holloway looks at the way the book of Leviticus applies to the modern Christian’s walk with God.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • God is serious about his people living in holiness because, as God’s children, we are called to live in relationship with him and given the responsibility of representing God to the world through righteous lives.

  • We cannot live however we want, in sin and unrighteousness, and expect God to bless us.

  • In the Bible, we see clearly that there are blessings that come to the Christian when we live in obedience to God’s commands and judgments when we are not walking in obedience to God’s Word.

  • The judgments of God are either redemptive or retributive. They either discipline or they destroy.

  • God disciplines those whom he loves so that we might share in his holiness.

  • Repentance is not only about the forgiveness of sins, but also a return to holy living.
