Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples

A Good Day for Aaron and His Sons

God has promised to dwell with his people. However, his unflinching holiness and their abiding sinfulness make this reality seem impossible. Because he is gracious God provides representatives to mediate between his people and himself. In this God shows us that the enjoyment of his blessings are mediated by perfect obedience. The newly ordained priests in their insufficiency and weakness gloriously point forward to the all sufficient, strong, eternally acceptable high priest, Jesus. And it is likewise through the obedience of the mediator, Jesus, that we receive and enjoy God’s blessing.
