By Don Ruhl

Our God is a holy God and He cannot be served lightly, or while we continue to live in sin. However, He can prepare us for His work. For example, consider what He did to make Aaron and his sons ready for service in the tabernacle,

“Thus you shall do to Aaron and his sons, according to all that I have commanded you. Seven days you shall consecrate them. And you shall offer a bull every day as a sin offering for atonement. You shall cleanse the altar when you make atonement for it, and you shall anoint it to sanctify it. Seven days you shall make atonement for the altar and sanctify it. And the altar shall be most holy. Whatever touches the altar must be holy” (Exodus 29.35–37). 

You can see that preparing them for tabernacle work was serious business. Likewise, it took the blood of Jesus of Nazareth, God’s own Son, to prepare us for service in the Kingdom of God!

Questions:

  • Do you serve the Lord?
  • How do you serve the Lord?
