Observation: What was going on in the Bible at this time?
God gave specific instructions to the Israelites about cleansing from infectious skin diseases, mildew and uncleanness in Leviticus 14-15. These verses in Leviticus provide a key to understanding all the laws and regulations that God had given His people.
Application: How can we apply this to our lives?
God had told His people how to diagnose infectious skin diseases and mildew so they could avoid them or treat them, for the people’s health and protection. Even though we do not follow these exact practices of the Old Testament today, the Word of God still provides a pattern for spiritually, morally and physically healthy living. When we obey God, we will thrive. God is concerned about our health, for he calls the people to avoid unhealthy practices and promote healthy ones.
Prayer: What can we pray for in regards to these passages?
Heavenly Father, Please help us to always follow Your instructions and to obey Your every command in our lives. Help us to always stay faithful to You, asking for Your guidance. We thank You for being concerned with us maintaining our physical health and preserving our spiritual dignity. We know we are sinners, and we thank You for the forgiveness that You give to us when we ask for it. Please work in our lives, and be with the people who need You most right now. We love You and thank You. – in Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
