Now that the tabernacle has been completed, the Lord directs Moses in the total life of worship with the seasonal and lunar celebrations that call to mind all that God has done for the people. Jewish children begin with the Book of Leviticus as the introduction to their life with God. Worshipping the Lord is the way that one comes to know God. No longer does God call to Moses from the heights of Mt. Sinai, but rather from a level plane at the sacred center of the people—the Holy of Holies.
The tabernacle and subsequent Temple no longer exist. Jesus is the living temple. His love burned for you on the cross in the sacrifice to end all sacrifices. Holy Communion brings this sacrifice into the present moment of worship. May your whole being be a burnt offering of love to God. Worship in Christ Jesus.

Example: Offering my heart by fire 2:10
The Saturday passages follow the reading list that Jewish people use in their synagogue worship
throughout the world. They are taken from
“The Torah,” the first five books of the Bible from Genesis to Deuteronomy
that are read each year beginning with autumn.
