Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Born Again to Serve God and Others.”
Text: Numbers 3:12
“Now behold, I Myself have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of every firstborn who opens the womb among the children of Israel. Therefore the Levites shall be Mine,”
This Truth that We were “Born Again to Serve God and Others,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
This Truth is illustrated with Israel serving God and each other by the tribe of Levi and the priests of Levi.
All Priests were Levites but not all Levites were priests. Priests were descendants of Aaron the first High Priest. Aaron was the shadow of the Perfect and Eternal High Priest Jesus Christ.
The first born of Israel were set apart and sanctified by God to live, when He killed the first born of Egypt. So the first born of Israel all belonged to God. In our text God exchanged the firstborn of Israel for the tribe of Levi to Serve the needs of Aaron the High Priest, and the needs of Israel:
“Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel, and the livestock of the Levites instead of their livestock. The Levites shall be Mine: I am the LORD.” (v.45).
The Levites were chosen to Serve Aaron and his descendants and to serve Israel.
Our Commander Jesus Christ is our Perfect and Eternal High Priest and He has made us a Chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, a holy nation, His own special treasure; that we should Serve Him as our High Priest and others, by proclaiming the praises of Him Who has called us out of darkness into His Marvelous Light! (1Pet.2:9)
We have been Born Again To Serve God and Others; by Proclaiming and Living The Gospel of Jesus Christ! Oooooh Rah!
