Lev 24:1 Yahveh spoke to Moses, and this is what he said,
Lev 24:2 “Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil from beaten olives for the lamp, so that a light may be kept burning regularly.
Lev 24:3 Outside the veil of the testimony, in the conference tent, Aaron will arrange it from evening to morning in Yahveh’s sight regularly. It will be a permanent prescription throughout your generations.
Lev 24:4 He will arrange the lamps on the lamp-stand of pure gold in Yahveh’s sight regularly.
regular oil change
God will supply the olives for the oil by his grace, but it will be up to his people to change the oil and keep the light regularly burning. Jesus is the light of the world, and he calls on us to light the world as a reflection of his light, so that people may see our good works, and praise God. The symbol of the light is helpful because the light makes the tabernacle visible, so that even though the light is kept going by human effort, it reflects God’s presence, and thus teaches of his grace.
LORD, show us how to reflect your presence and grace in our regular worship.
