Something About Aaron

ns60h

I was reading through Leviticus not usually a page turner … Anyways … I was awed by the fact that Aaron–the same Aaron who was responsible for the golden calf and the spiritual (and possibly physical) adultery of the people of God while Moses was up on Mount Sinai–this same lack-of-leadership Aaron is now being ordained as a priest and the father of the Aaronic priesthood. Now we know this was going to happen, of course, but sometimes when you read through the bible anew (and systematically) you make connections that you’ve never seen before. I feel like I know Aaron so much better now and he is so much more than just Moses’ brother and the priest. He is a flawed sinner with major spiritual failure in his life. And he is redeemed to lead people in the worship of God.

Amen!

Aaronic blessing:

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face shine upon you.

May the Lord be gracious to you and grant you his peace.

As he did to Aaron!

Have a blessed evening everyone! Tim
