Key Words: And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tabernacle
The tribe of Levi was set apart for the service of the sanctuary.
A Levite would serve in the sanctuary from the age of twenty-five to the age of fifty (Numbers 8:24-25).
The duties of the Levites were to preserve the law of God and to see that its requirements were complied with.
The Levites were divided into three branches based upon the three sons of Levi.
- Section one was Kohath, named after the son of Levi. They formed the priesthood.
- Section two was Gershon. They appear to have been in charge of the sacred part of the tabernacle.
- Section three was Merari who were responsible for lesser duties.
Let me ask you, do you see the importance of faithfully doing the will of God?
When Queen Victoria was a child, she didn’t know she was in line for the throne of England. Her instructors, trying to prepare her for the future, were frustrated because they couldn’t motivate her. She just didn’t take her studies seriously. Finally, her teachers decided to tell her that one day she would become the queen of England. Upon hearing this, Victoria quietly said, “Then I will be good.” The realization that she had inherited this high calling gave her a sense of responsibility that profoundly affected her conduct from then on.
We have received the highest calling in the land and that is as born-again believers to represent the King of Kings and Lord of Lords – so let’s fulfill our responsibility.
What to do:
✞ Be faithful ambassadors for Christ.
