“Have Aaron your brother brought to you…so they may serve me as priests…Make sacred garments for them...” Ex 26:8.

In the Old Testament a priest was named to go into the Holy of Holies and be the mediator between God and His people. God told Moses to appoint his brother to this position, along with Aaron’s sons. God instructed that the people make sacred garments for those who were to serve in the temple. At that time, God chose and enabled only certain people as priests to hear to speak on His behalf. Once Christ rose from the dead He sent His spirit into every believer so that all could experience fellowship and guidance from God.

As my dad’s home going anniversary approaches this weekend it is only fitting that God led me to his favorite Bible verse. ‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.’ 1 Peter 2:9. He wore his sacred garments well and fully embraced his role as priest serving before God. He arose when chosen to direct a ministry of bringing unsaved children to Jesus. He wore the crown of spiritual royalty on earth as it was obvious he served in the court of High Priest. He relished in the reality of being in the Body of the Holy Christ and declared his loyalty at every turn. Oh, he wore his sacred garments well and served with the fervor and dedication God calls each of us to serve. I embrace this weekend with the beautiful imagery that this Saturday marks the day when he walked out of the darkness of this world and into the brilliant light of Heaven…when he exchanged denim for fine linen and cotton for the righteousness of God.

As believers we are all promised the same reality but given the freedom to choose. Will we exchange our will for His? Will we stand up and allow God to remove our garment of flesh as He replaces it with His robe of righteousness? Will we serve ourselves or will we serve the High Priest? Let us exchange our old clothes for new clothes and follow the One who will lead us to our Father. ‘But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing’ 2 Co. 2:14-15.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
