Leviticus 6

[a]The Lord said to Moses: “If anyone sins and is unfaithful to the Lordby deceiving a neighbor about something entrusted to them or left in their care or about something stolen, or if they cheat their neighbor, or if they find lost property and lie about it, or if they swear falsely about any such sin that people may commit— when they sin in any of these ways and realize their guilt, they must return what they have stolen or taken by extortion, or what was entrusted to them, or the lost property they found, or whatever it was they swore falsely about. They must make restitution in full, add a fifth of the value to it and give it all to the owner on the day they present their guilt offering. And as a penalty they must bring to the priest, that is, to the Lord, their guilt offering, a ram from the flock, one without defect and of the proper value. In this way the priest will make atonement for them before the Lord, and they will be forgiven for any of the things they did that made them guilty.”

The Burnt Offering

The Lord said to Moses: “Give Aaron and his sons this command: ‘These are the regulations for the burnt offering: The burnt offering is to remain on the altar hearth throughout the night, till morning, and the fire must be kept burning on the altar. 10 The priest shall then put on his linen clothes, with linen undergarments next to his body, and shall remove the ashes of the burnt offering that the fire has consumed on the altar and place them beside the altar. 11 Then he is to take off these clothes and put on others, and carry the ashes outside the camp to a place that is ceremonially clean. 12 The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest is to add firewood and arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it. 13 The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out.

The Grain Offering

14 “‘These are the regulations for the grain offering: Aaron’s sons are to bring it before the Lord, in front of the altar. 15 The priest is to take a handful of the finest flour and some olive oil, together with all the incense on the grain offering, and burn the memorial[b] portion on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord. 16 Aaron and his sons shall eat the rest of it, but it is to be eaten without yeast in the sanctuary area; they are to eat it in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. 17 It must not be baked with yeast; I have given it as their share of the food offerings presented to me. Like the sin offering[c] and the guilt offering, it is most holy. 18 Any male descendant of Aaron may eat it. For all generations to come it is his perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the Lord. Whatever touches them will become holy.[d]’”

19 The Lord also said to Moses, 20 “This is the offering Aaron and his sons are to bring to the Lord on the day he[e] is anointed: a tenth of an ephah[f] of the finest flour as a regular grain offering, half of it in the morning and half in the evening. 21 It must be prepared with oil on a griddle; bring it well-mixed and present the grain offering broken[g] in pieces as an aroma pleasing to the Lord. 22 The son who is to succeed him as anointed priest shall prepare it. It is the Lord’s perpetual share and is to be burned completely. 23 Every grain offering of a priest shall be burned completely; it must not be eaten.”

The Sin Offering

24 The Lord said to Moses, 25 “Say to Aaron and his sons: ‘These are the regulations for the sin offering: The sin offering is to be slaughtered before the Lord in the place the burnt offering is slaughtered; it is most holy. 26 The priest who offers it shall eat it; it is to be eaten in the sanctuary area, in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. 27 Whatever touches any of the flesh will become holy, and if any of the blood is spattered on a garment, you must wash it in the sanctuary area. 28 The clay pot the meat is cooked in must be broken; but if it is cooked in a bronze pot, the pot is to be scoured and rinsed with water. 29 Any male in a priest’s family may eat it; it is most holy.30 But any sin offering whose blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place must not be eaten; it must be burned up.



Leviticus 6

Don’t let the fire go out! One of the specific details that God gives Moses to tell the priests. Gods details are important because he wants obedience and our undivided attention. He wants us to commit to doing what’s right before him. True dedication to God. When we sin against people we sin against God. How we treat people is what we do to the Lord, both good and bad. Our actions speaking louder than the words we say. God gives us specific instructions so we don’t have to figure it out all on our own, he’s not going to leave us hanging.

Remember that feeling you had deep in your soul and your heart the very first time you met Jesus? When God himself set that spark in you and you started that relationship. As a Christian we have a responsibility to live obediently as we walk with him in a Spirit lead, humble devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ. God started that passion in us! That fire… but it’s not God‘s responsibility to keep your fire going! Just like the woodstove fire, the fireplace fire, the campfire: if you want to keep it going… if you want to stay all cozy, warm and comfortable you have to GET CLOSE to the fire and FEED it to keep it going. The fire burning on the altar is a picture of what it looks like to commit and surrender ourselves to God.

Don’t let your fire go out it’s your responsibility to feed the fire. Observing, watching and being committed to the Lord. It says every night and every morning but those of us who tend to woodstoves know you have to check on it all day long or it’s going to smolder and go out.
It’s a commitment to keep that fire going just like it is a commitment to stay connected to God.

1) COMMIT to that fire! Stay connected… Join a mid-week group!

2) SPEND TIME tending the fire! Commit some personal quiet time to God, in the morning and at night.

3) Mid day… when your fizzling out, you’re distracted… FAN THE FIRE! Turn on some worship music in the car, at work wherever you are. Trust me God will place the right song into your ears and your heart because he knows just what you need at that moment.

4) When you get uncomfortable DRAW CLOSER! Pray. Talk to him, have a conversation with him and be intentional. Thank him, glorify him and praise him then have a real conversation with him.

Pastor Jose asked us this morning: How’s your fire going?

So on point this morning Pastor Jose thank you for this reminder.
