Let yourself become open to God and the knowledge that comes from the Word. Ask God for a peace at this time.
God had specific rules for just about every aspect of the Jewish people. In today’s passage, we see just how specific his details were. Moses was given recipes for anointing oil and incense; God worked out the measurements so the final products would be just right. So right in fact, he considered them and whatever they touched to be holy.
Moses was instructed to anoint Aaron and his sons as priests. This was the identifying marker that they were special and consecrated before the Lord. They were called to be priests for the people according to the Old Covenant.
With Jesus, we have a New Covenant. One in which we are all called to be priests and a holy people. We have no need for an anointing with oil because we have received an anointing by the Holy Spirit. We are set apart, by God’s perfect measure, each of us a priest and a messenger of the fragrance of eternal life.
God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to lead lives that are like a sweet fragrance that rises to you every day. Amen
Go with God!
