Exodus 28:31-39
31 “You shall make the robe of the ephod all of blue. 32 It shall have an opening for the head in the middle of it, with a woven binding around the opening, like the opening in a garment, so that it may not tear. 33 On its hem you shall make pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet yarns, around its hem, with bells of gold between them, 34 a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, around the hem of the robe. 35 And it shall be on Aaron when he ministers, and its sound shall be heard when he goes into the Holy Place before the Lord, and when he comes out, so that he does not die.
36 “You shall make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet, ‘Holy to the Lord.’ 37 And you shall fasten it on the turban by a cord of blue. It shall be on the front of the turban. 38 It shall be on Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall bear any guilt from the holy things that the people of Israel consecrate as their holy gifts. It shall regularly be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.
39 “You shall weave the coat in checker work of fine linen, and you shall make a turban of fine linen, and you shall make a sash embroidered with needlework.
What was the significance of the gold medallion engraved with “Holy To The Lord” over the priest’s forehead as he offered sacrifices to God?
How can you always keep God in mind as you worship?
There were bells sewn into the priest’s robe to announce his presence and movements as he served the Lord in the Most Holy Place. Without these bells he could die. Think about what it meant for him as a mere man to go into the presence of the Lord.
Heavenly Father, Would I risk my life to worship You if I knew I could die if I did anything wrong, or came to You with the wrong mindset? I sure hope I would, but it’s hard to know what I would do until the situation came to reality. I know things have changed drastically for us as faithful believers on this side of the cross, but I wonder if You are disappointed with how we come into Your presence without the reverence, adoration, and wonder that the priests had at one time. I so want to please You and want You to know that I do know You are God and deserve our praise, worship, and to be revered above all else. I know we seldom seem to revere You as we should. Thank You for loving me and accepting me as I am and extending Your grace and mercy to me even though I know I don’t deserve it.
In Jesus’ name.
