Chapter 31 warps up the instructions of consecration with the tablets given. God called Israelites to be holy, because He is; in the same way, He calls us to be holy in all we do too. (Lev 11:44, 1 Pet 1:16).
The way we worship, the way we prepare our offering/gifts, the way we use our talent, the way we spend our time and resources, the way we work and make decisions, the way we treat others, the way we lead our lives, the way we love, the way we hate…all included in the sanctification work of the Spirit.
During this Holy Week, may we also be touched by these verses with a strong reminder that the filthy and unworthy were only cleansed by the One and Holy – by the blood of the Lamb of God. —- Ivy Lin
