Even the priests, who approach YHWH, must consecrate themselves, or YHWH will break out against them.
This was the day when YHWH called all the people of Israel to Mount Sinai to enter into covenant with them. It was a time all the people were to prepare themselves for. Even the priests had to consecrate themselves. They’re position didn’t exempt them. They could have easily thought that they were already prepared for such an occasion. Yet, YHWH made it clear that they were to prepare just as everyone else.
It amazes me when I see people in some important position feel that they are above the rest. Feel that they can cut through a line. Feel they don’t have to follow or obey what everyone else has to. I think what bothers me the most about that is how it seems like many of them have just forgot where they came from. It’s one thing to be invited, it’s another to expect it.
Don’t let your position in life make you feel you’re exempt from what the Father is calling all of us to walk in.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
