Day 20 - 90 Day Bible Reading Challenge - Exodus 25 -28 - The Great Adventure A Journey Through the Bible

Day 20 
Exodus 29 - 32  
By Sarah Christmyer 

Bible Time Period:  Egypt and Exodus 
You freed your people from slavery in Egypt so they could worship you. Free me from sin so I can serve and worship.

Lord God, You created Israel to be a priestly nation.  You gave Your Old Covenant people an earthly Sanctuary and an ordained priesthood to lead Israel and all mankind on a liturgical trajectory toward a promised liturgical destiny, worship in the heavenly Sanctuary.  Our New Covenant priesthood, like the Old Covenant priesthood, serves Your New Covenant people in the same way, providing right worship in the joining of earthly and heavenly liturgy and sustains Your people on their journey through the wilderness of this earthly existence but which holds the promise of entrance into the heavenly Sanctuary for those who choose to remain faithful and obedient.  Guide us now, Lord, as we study Your instructions to Moses on the consecration of Aaron and his sons as Your holy priests ordained to offer acceptable sacrifice on Your holy altar.  We pray in the name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  (Agape Catholic Bible Study, Exodus Lesson 15)

In today’s chapters, we move to details of priestly consecration and the altar of incense.  Israel is being given instructions for worshiping God.  How ironic that chapter 32 follows right on these instructions:  the people fall into idolatry right away with the golden calf.
