Day 219: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: Leviticus 25:1-7
Before starting today’s journey, spend some time in prayer, asking God to reveal His true meaning of Leviticus 25-27. Read Leviticus 25-27. Let’s journey!
Commentary: The Year of Jubilee and the Sabbath Year are described in chapter 25. Both concern the Promised Land that will be given to the Israelites. Chapter 26 outlines the conditions the Israelites must uphold to retain the land. It also foretells what will, and eventually did, happen if/when the Israelites do not keep the covenant. While the book of Leviticus records the laws all Israelites are to follow, chapter 27 is voluntary. It focuses on vows made to the Lord. It is not required to make vows to the Lord, but, if done, they must be fulfilled. Such vows are not to be made lightly or in jest.
Focus Verses: Leviticus 25:1-7 – Why is the Sabbath Year important? Was there a reason beyond resting the land? How do you show honor to the Lord?
