What’s the Difference

Just for YOUth…

In Leviticus chapter ten we read of the account of Nadab and Abihu. They were killed for offering unto the Lord that which He commanded not (verse one). God is serious about what will and will not please Him (Heb. 11:6). How can we know what God desires and what He abhors?

By studying and knowing the will of God (Eph. 5:17) we can know right from wrong. God would warn the Israelites, especially the priests, that they should “put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean” (Lev. 10:10). They needed to know the difference.

Under the New Testament God wants the same thing. He wants us to know what is “acceptable” (Acts 10:35) and what is not. Young people are often faced with decisions. How do they decide what is right and wrong? The simple answer is to know and obey the word of God. “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskillfull in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Heb. 5:12-14).

Do you want to do what is right? Sure you do. Then please learn the word of God so that you can know the difference.
