Exodus: serving in God’s name

Those who served at the tabernacle were to be as ornately dressed as the tabernacle itself.  It is a special thing to serve God for the sake of your people, and to represent him to your people.  This aspect of spiritual leadership is seen in the ephod, with a precious stone representing each tribe of Israel.  The high priest’s turban had a band across the forehead with the words “holy to the LORD” engraved on it.  As the high priest represented the whole nation, this was probably also a way of God claiming ownership of his people.

LORD, may we take service in your name seriously, and honor those who serve among us in your name.
