Day 24 - 90 Day Bible Reading Challenge - Numbers 5 - 8 - The Great Adventure A Journey Through the Bible

Day 24 

Numbers 5-8
Bible Time Period:  Desert Wanderings 

You taught Israel to walk in faith through 40 years’ wandering in the desert:  Help me to trust in you today, O God.

Lord of Righteousness, we are consecrated in our service to You like the vow of service offered by the lifetime Nazirite.  We are bound by our Baptismal and Confirmation vows to serve You throughout our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ.  But, unlike the Nazirite, we do not fear ritual defilement.  Jesus has purified us by His precious blood and freed us from bounds of defilement from sin and death. The sign of our consecration is not the length of our hair or abstaining from wine.  The sign of our consecration is our participation in the sacrifice of the Mass and in receiving the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior.  Guide us, Lord, in our study of ritual purity and consecration in the Sinai Covenant and give us the courage and conviction to fulfill the vows we have made to You for a lifetime of service.  We pray in the name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  (Agape Catholic Bible Study, Lesson 3
Aaronic Benediction
The Lord said to Moses:  "Speak to Aaron and his sons and tell them:  This is how you shall bless the Israelites.  Say to them: The Lord bless you and keep you.  The Lord let his face shine upon you and be gracious to you.  The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace.  So shall they invoke my name upon the Israelites, and I will bless them."  (Numbers 6:22 - 27)
