Today Reminder - 27 December 2012 (Chosen)

A reminder for today
“Buds will sprout on the staff belonging to the man I choose. Then I will finally put an end to the people's murmuring and complaining against you. "When he went into the Tabernacle of the Covenant the next day, he found that Aaron's staff, representing the tribe of Levi, had sprouted, budded, blossomed, and produced ripe almonds! (Numbers 17: 5 and 8)

You have been chosen:

There was a rebellion in the Israelite camp about leadership and the people questioned Aaron and Moses as their leaders stating that they have not brought them to a land of milk and honey but instead they were doomed to die in the wilderness. The result was that God opened the earth and underneath Korah and all his followers and they were buried alive. Finally God told Moses that he must collect the staffs from all the tribal leaders and He will show whom He chooses when buds will sprout from that staff.

My dear friend, thanks to the wonderful gift we have in Jesus Christ we are all able to enter into God’s holy place and spend time with Him. This is an enormous gift and one we should take very seriously. In the Old Testament only Aaron was allowed in God’s holy place in the tabernacle. People had to present offerings before God in a number of rituals to clean them from sin. 

All we have to do is accept the Lord Jesus Christ who carried our burden of sin and destroyed the grip of death and defeated the devil so that we are completely free to live our lives for the Lord. Therefore you are chosen to represent the Lord in all that you do and in all that you are. You are His child and He loves you so much. 

Come and let us glorify His name through our lives.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
