Day 34, Leviticus 8-10
Today's reading contains the very detailed instructions for the ordination of the priests. Today the New Testament tells us that we are "a chose 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 darkness into His wonderful light." (I Pet. 2:9)
This reading also has the story fo Nadab and Abihu, who were destroyed by the Lord for disobeying His command. With this, we are reminded that above all, the Lord is holy. For He said, "Among those who approach me, I will show myself holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored."
