Does God Reject Unclean People?

Big Idea: We can only enter into God’s presence because of God’s grace.


  • If God is good and the Bible is God’s Word, then everything the Bible teaches is good.


  • What’s our reaction when we encounter a tough text?

  1. There’s something wrong with the Bible.

  2. There’s something wrong with me.

  3. There’s something wrong with my understanding of the text.



  • It’s not sinful to be unclean – it’s sinful to enter into God’s presence in an unclean state.


  • The cleanliness laws are designed to bring God’s people back into his presence.

    Genesis 3:23-24



  • Jesus makes us clean so we can be in God’s presence and God’s presence can be in us.

    1 John 1:9
