Scripture

Exodus 29

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is the underlying theme of the ordination of the priests (the triple cleansing with water, blood and fire)? What is the significance of the blood being applied to the their right ears, right thumbs, and right big toes?

Application

Have I been washed clean eternally by Christ’s blood, and do I regularly get cleansed in this life by confessing my sin to God? Do I let the message of Christ permeate my life by hearing the Word of God, doing the work of God, and walking in the ways of God?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Lord, I come to You to be cleansed. I thank You for immersing me in the blood of Christ to wash away my sin. I praise you for the water of Your Word, that teaches me how to live a clean and holy life. And I thank You for the fire of your Spirit, who empowers me to live for You. As the blood was applied to the priest’s ear, may I filter everything I hear through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As it was applied to the priest’s right thumb, may I always work for You, doing whatever task is before me to Your glory. as the blood was applied to the priest’s big toe, may I walk in Your ways, constantly reminded of what Jesus did for me, so that remebrance would keep me from straying from Your path. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
