Day 176 - Leviticus, 21

Today we read how careful the priests had to be. You remember that 1 Peter 2:55Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:5) tells us that every believer in the Lord Jesus is a priest before God. Stop and consider that. If the priests in those days had to be so careful, how much more careful should we be? We are God's priests in this wicked and corrupt world. They needed to be ready to go into God's presence at any moment; so need we from day to day.
