Sections like what we find in today’s reading makes me thankful that I am living after the cross. Today we see the setting a part of Aaron and his family as the priestly family. It will be their responsibility to go before God on behalf of the people of Israel. By the way, when we read chapter twenty-nine we see some pretty amazing things done to Aaron and his family when they were ordained as the priest. Can I just say that I am glad my ordination did not involve the slaughter of bulls and the sprinkling of their blood!
Here is the cool thing, since we live after the cross we do not need anyone to go before God on our behalf. Jesus paid the price, he has redeemed our sins. In Christ we have found our ultimate mediator and we came come before God on our own. We now have the privilege of calling God Abba, Father, Master, and Savior. I am thankful for the savior that has saved me. Are you as thankful?
