Can We Handle the Process?

Today’s Torah Devotional from Leviticus 9:17-23
The Third Book of the Torah, “Vayikra,” “And HE Called.”
This weeks reading is, “Shemini,” ,”Eighth”

Today we continue reading of Aaron’s first actions as the newly installed High Priest of GOD.

He has taken the sin offering and is now taking the grain offering from the people of Israel, to the altar of GOD.

He then slaughters the bull and the ram, the peoples peace offering. His son’s catching and passing the blood for him to dash on all sides of the altar.

They also passed him the chest and right hind legs of the offerings to perform the prescribed motions for the wave offering before handing him the choice parts of the bull and the ram, to be placed on the chest and burned.

Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them. He then descended from the altar, going into the Communion Tent with Moshe.

Moshe and Aaron came out of the Tent. They then blessed the people and GODs glory was revealed to them all.

Here we have Aaron and his sons on the eighth day, the first day after their installation, performing in their newly installed position of priest.

Their first acts of service are to make the acceptable sacrifices from the people, unto GOD, as HE has prescribed.

Aaron and his sons have just endured their seven day installation process.

They have remained at the entrance of the Communion Tent until this eighth day.

They have been accepted as priest unto GOD.

Many times we find ourselves with the desire to serve GOD. To be used by HIM. To serve in HIS Will.

How many times have we considered what HE may demand of us to be in service to HIM?

Do we see the process of Aaron and his son’s and wonder if we could have endured those same circumstances?

Could we go through the refinement of all that GOD may require of us before we can be of service to HIM?

Why would we believe our service to HIM would be accepted without such a process?
