“These are the appointed feasts of the LORD that you shall proclaim as holy convocations …” (v2). God not only rescued Israel from Egypt, He also gave them instructions about how to live in the Promised Land. They celebrated several religious “feasts” throughout the year, such as Passover/Unleavened Bread (v5-6), which commemorated their deliverance from Egypt, others that were agricultural, and the solemn yearly Day of Atonement. Season to season, God was at the center of everything.
“When you come into the land …” (v10). Whatever we do, wherever we go, God calls us to intentionally arrange our lives so that He is our center and our purpose.
