Specifics of these regulations no longer pertain in our lives. However, as we read this final passage from the Book of Leviticus, ponder again upon the Hebrew qadosh, the word for all the English expressions used for "dedication."
Something or someone is holy when set apart and dedicated for the things of God. As the Easter season ends, remember that you are to be set apart for God, to live in the new temple of the Body of Christ.
Jesus’ disciples waited in the Temple after he ascended into heaven, waiting for the Holy Spirit to come upon them and to fill them completely.
Only God is holy. However, you become holy and wholly the Lord’s when the “parcel of land” that you live in is the Holy Body of Christ.
All things holy to the Lord v. 30
Set apart for You, O Lord
By being consecrated
Living in Your body, Lord
