Leviticus, Week 10 “From Religion to Relationship”
Leviticus 16 might seem like an odd passage to use for an Easter message. However, this chapter is a wonderful example of how God used religion to bring the Israelite people a kind of freedom that other religions did not.
And that was only the beginning. Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God has ended religion as we know it. In fact, he has reversed the course of religion by entering into a relationship with humanity through his Son, Jesus. This invites us to live in freedom and forgiveness, which is only possible through his love and grace.
