Leviticus 7:21 Don’t Touch Anything Unclean

Anyone who touches something unclean–whether human uncleanness or an unclean animal or any unclean creature taht moves along the ground–and then eats any of the meat of the fellowship offering belonging to the Lord must be cut off from their people. Leviticus 7:21

Most people believe in being clean when they eat something. They do not want to bring any germs onto their food to go into their body.

In order to prevent these germs, most will wash their hands prior to eating anything. This does a good job at removing physical dirt that is on the outside of their body.

God told the people that if anyone touches anything unclean and then eats of the fellowship offering, that person must be cut off from the people.

Physical sacrifices are no longer required by God to have fellowship with Him and each other. However, there are sacrifices of praise and worship in fellowship with God and others that are to be done on a regular basis.

Just as the Israelites were to touch no unclean thing, believers are also to not touch anything unclean. This uncleanness now extends to more than just unclean animals, but also to anything that is sin, both physical and non-physical.

During the week many believers allow sin into their lives and do not repent of those sins. Then they get together with other believers on the weekends to worship God and fellowship with each other, with no repentance of sin. As they get together, they are dirty with sin in their lives.

Prior to getting together to worship God, every believer should take time to repent of any and all sins in his life. God is faithful and will forgive the person and make him clean before the Lord, allowing the fellowship to occur in holiness and righteousness.

You will have times that you will step into sin, making your life dirty on the inside. Do not allow that dirt to remain there, keeping you away from God and others, but repent of those sins and allow God to forgive you and clean you up.

Open the doors of fellowship with God and other believers by fleeing sin and repenting of any and all sins in your life. God wants to meet with you and talk with you, so do not touch anything unclean physically or spiritually.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will flee all sin your life; that you will repent of any sins before God; and that you will know true fellowship with God and others in holiness and righteousness.
