Made Holy- Exodus 29:38-46
Today’s Reading Schedule: exodus 28-29(CEB)- Click to read
38 Now this is what you should offer on the altar: two one-year-old lambs regularly every day. 39 Offer one lamb in the morning and offer the other lamb at twilight. 40 With the first lamb, add one-tenth of a measure of the high-quality flour mixed with a quarter of a hin of oil from crushed olives and a quarter of a hin of wine for a drink offering. 41 With the second lamb offered at twilight, again include a grain offering and its drink offering as in the morning as a soothing smell, a gift offering for the Lord. 42 This should be the regular entirely burned offering in every generation at the meeting tent’s entrance in the Lord’s presence. There I will meet with you, and there I will speak to you. 43 I will meet with the Israelites there, and it will be made holy by my glorious presence. 44 I will make the meeting tent and the altar holy. Likewise, I will make Aaron and his sons holy to serve me as priests. 45 I will be at home among the Israelites, and I will be their God. 46 They will know that I am the Lord their God, who brought them out of the land of Egypt so that I could make a home among them. I am the Lord their God.
What Does the passage Mean to Me/US?
God calls Aron to be God’s priest. God’s detail directions instruct what the priest should wear and what to do.
The main role of the priest is to lead the people to worship, where God promises to meet the people.
Not only Aron and his sons are called, God promises to make them holy.
Through Jesus Christ, one thing has changed.
A called position, for a certain people, to be included in the line of priesthood had opened up to everyone who believes in him. We are to lead others to meet God. And even though we might wonder how that is possible, we need to remember God’s promise. “I will make Aaron and his sons holy to serve me as priests” (Exodus 29: 44 CEB).
When we faithfully carry out our call, we will all know ‘God is the Lord.’
Lord, make us holy for your purpose. Mold us and shape us to your glory. In Christ Name, we pray, AMEN
