Exodus 40:32 NLT
“Whenever they approached the altar and entered the Tabernacle, they washed themselves, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.”
Jesus did it all!
The importance of Jesus’s death and resurrection is difficult to comprehend fully. For instance, according to God’s instructions, Aaron and his sons were required to sanctify themselves before entering the Tabernacle. And today’s referenced scripture stated it – each must wash himself! The washing is not dependent on whether they shower before approaching the Tabernacle; instead, they had to wash themselves each time they approached the Tabernacle. The fact they washed themselves 5 minutes before leaving the Tabernacle did not exclude them from doing it at another time within a day when they wanted to enter the Tabernacle again. Even though science says that the elderly should have minimal contact with water to minimize dryness of their skin, Moses and Aaron, in their eighties, did everything to God’s glory. Friends, do not serve God based on whether or not it syncs with the norms or traditions of your immediate environment.
You are the only one and true God, I thank You for the perfect gift of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. Please help me so I may continually be appreciative of Your great love. In Jesus’s name, amen.
