Jesus closed the door on the law of Moses and set us free from the obligation to keep it. 

These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai. Leviticus 27:34

Though going through Leviticus seemed daunting, I am grateful to have studied it because it opened my eyes to how truly blessed we are to have Jesus. He has made it easier to worship God and redeemed the tasks associated with keeping the law. 

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. Romans 10:4

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24

We are not under the heavy yoke of the law and are set free in our worship. Even though we are not burdened under the law to honor God by our sacrifices, we must do our part by loving Him and loving others. The law and the prophets are summed up by loving God and loving people. If you get these two things right, you will have covered the law and pleased God by your actions. Worship Him in spirit and truth.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40
