Under Gods Command (Book of Leviticus)

Instructions for the people

Clean and Unclean Food

11:25 Whoever picks up one of their carcasses must wash their clothes, and they will be unclean till evening.

In order to worship, people need to be prepared. Some acts of disobedience, some natural acts (such as childbirth, menstruation, or sex), or some accidents (such as touching a dead or diseased body) would make people ceremonially unclean (defiled) and thus forbidden to participate in worship. This did not imply that they had sinned or were rejected by God, but it insured that all worship was done decently and in order. This chapter describes many of the intentional or accidental occurrences that would disqualify people from worship until they were “cleansed” or straightened out.

Lets Bring this Home: Similarly, we need to be prepared for worship. We cannot live any way we want during the week and then rush into God’s presence on Sunday. We should prepare ourselves through repentance, correction of errors where possible, and thoughtful anticipation of what it will mean to be in God’s presence with other believers.
