Topic: OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE…Part 2
Text: Exodus 32:26KJV
26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
In part 1, we said serving God is an opportunity not a birth right, today we want to consider how to respond to God’s service with biblical examples as reference.
Generally, your expectation from God determines the priority you attached to his service.
In Exodus 32, when Moses came down from the mount and saw Israel worshipping a golden calf image, he went to the gate of the camp and shouted that who is on Lord’s side? Let him come unto him. All the Levite’s heard this call and ran to where Moses was. Their obedience to that call rewrote their generational history because they became the only tribe consecrated by God to serve in his temple. Before then, the Levites were under a curse which their father brought on them from their great grand father. Jacob curse Levi for joining league with Simeon to destroy a family with sword (Genesis 49), this curse had been on them until they answered the call from Moses to stand out for God. So to the Levite a call to service was like a call to redemption, a call to glorious destiny, a call to dedication and total separation unto God. From that point onward, God made the tribe of Levi among all tribes of Israel to work and serve in his temple.
In Numbers 25 is a story of a man who saw an opportunity to serve as a call to stop evil in the land and kindled the anger of God upon his people. The Israelites were morning because the anger of God was upon them because they had sin, yet in the midst of this agony, an Israelite brought in an harlot into the land to commit adultery with her, Phinehas was angry against such wickedness and he took his javelins and smote the man and the harlot, and because of that singular act, God’s anger upon the land stopped.
Beloved, what is your disposition toward God’s service or what does God’s service mean to you? To Phinehas it was a call to uphold righteousness, abolish wickedness and stop evil in the land, while to the Levite’s it was a call to a transformed generation. As you go to church for service today what does it mean to you? God bless you.
* Father, help me to maximise every opportunity to serve you and to do your work in Jesus Name
