Introduction: A Lesson on the Holiness of God
God’s people—especially ministers—must not be innovative with the clear instructions of God (10:1-2).
Obey the clear stuff!
God’s people—especially ministers—must honor God and recognize His holiness (10:3).
God is a consuming fire. Act like you know this truth.
God’s people—especially ministers—must be an example to those who follow (10:4-7).
Your walk talks louder than your talk talks!
God’s people—especially ministers—must safeguard their ability to make distinction between holy, common, clean, and unclean (10:8-10).
Be sober and think straight!
God’s people—especially ministers—must take their life and ministry seriously (10:12-20).
Your life is your ministry!
Your example is more important than your position,
so guarantee your ability to discern between right and wrong
when the pressure is on.

Next Steps from Today’s Message
- I will take a serious inventory of my life in light of the Holy God I worship and serve.
- I will covenant with God to never be drunk and always be able to think clearly about spiritual matters.
- I will pay more attention to my example as a believer, than my entitlements as one.
Home Church Questions
- Read Leviticus 10:1-20.
- Is there anything that was new, memorable, or meaningful from this week’s message?
- Is there an immediate application you know you need to make?
- The Lord struck down Nadab, Abihu, Uzzah, Annanias, and Sapharia. Talk about that. Why? What is the lesson? Why is that not done more frequently?
- Talk about your views on alcohol. A biblical non-negotiable is that drunkenness is sin (Eph. 5:18).
- The directive to not consume alcohol is connected very clearly with the ability to be discerning. How should that be regularly applied in our lives?
- If Leviticus 11 were written today what might be added to the list along with alcohol? Is it legitimate to add a good night sleep to the list?
- Why is the example of our life so important?
