2/19/2010 - Holy Priesthood, Robin! Leviticus 8:23
Holy Priesthood, Robin!
SCRIPTURE: Leviticus 8:23 and Moses slaughtered it. Then Moses took some of its blood and applied it to the lobe of Aaron’s right ear, the thumb of his right hand, and the big toe of his right foot.
After Jesus, we all all called to this office of priestly intercession. We are supposed to bring people to God and we are supposed to bring an understanding of God to people. Therefore, we also have a higher responsibility.
The reason God had Moses anoint their ear, thumb and big toe is because signified being sanctified, set apart in what they listened to, what they did and where they went. It is the same for us. If we are going to take on the awesome responsibility of a priest before God, we need to apply the sanctifying blood of Jesus to what we listen to, what we do and where we go. We need to see ourselves as set aside in each of those areas for God's purposes alone. We can not be a sanctified priest or priestess and live in an unsanctified way.
