Holy Lord, while giving your statutes and ordinances to the Israelites, you explained to them why they must not do what the Canaanites did: “Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, for the people I am driving out before you have defiled themselves in all these ways. Because the entire land has become defiled, I am punishing the people who live there. I will cause the land to vomit them out.” Leviticus 18:24–25 (NLT). Then you explained to them why they must obey all your statutes: “You must keep all my decrees and regulations by putting them into practice; otherwise the land to which I am bringing you as your new home will vomit you out. Do not live according to the customs of the people I am driving out before you. It is because they do these shameful things that I detest them. But I have promised you, ‘You will possess their land because I will give it to you as your possession- a land flowing with milk and honey.’ I am the Lord your God, who has set you apart from all other people.” Leviticus 20:22–24 (NLT). Lord, under the New Covenant, we must obey all of Jesus’ commandments. Thank you for the salvation we receive through our faith in your Son. Amen.
