Holified - Master Quiz
Miles McPherson - March 19, 2006

Message Recap

With Easter fast approaching, Pastor Miles discussed how to invite people to our upcoming and exciting Easter service being held in the Cox Arena on April 16th.

Before he did that there was a short quiz on the book of Leviticus, a book about holiness. Using the knowledge we have from the third book of the Bible, Miles gave us an easy-to-use example on how to approach people, not to mention a lovely little button that says 'Ask Me about Leviticus.'

Miles reminded us of some of the following tips when witnessing:

  • Be nice/don't argue
  • Introduce yourself
  • Keep in mind the first and last thing your going to say
  • Have a goal for your conversation is to invite your friend to the Easter service
  • Remember nobody knows all the answers
  • Don't use terms that people may not be familiar with such as atonement or holified

Using our new knowledge of Leviticus and the button that was handed out, Miles showed us that when people asked us about the button we could introduce non-believers to the Old Testament, and show how the Old Testament directly points to the New Testament--and more importantly, Jesus dying for our sins.

The book of Leviticus lays down the letter of the law and gives very specific instructions on how people were to conduct themselves after leaving Egypt. This book is extremely specific on how living sacrifices for sins were to be offered, and showed us that shedding blood is necessary for forgiveness of sin. However, it is clear that as men and women, we cannot satisfy God's will as we are flawed and born into sin.

The New Testament, on the other hand, shows us the spirit of these laws through Jesus Christ and that through Jesus's own sacrifice of his blood that we are forgiven.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

We need to share this exciting news with others so that all can partake in the joy that is forgiveness and freedom from sin.

Holified

This 11-part series takes us through a study of the book of Leviticus which outlines for us what holy living is all about, living in the boundaries God has set for us. This message examines the connections between the book of Leviticus, the life of Jesus, and its relevance to our lives today.
