Leviticus 3.2 – Vocation
Posted: 26 May 2010 in Leviticus

And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the offering, and kill it at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron’s sons the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.

Here reference is made to the fact that Aaron’s sons had the exclusive right to execute the priestly office in ancient Israel. As Hebrews has it, “No man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God.” The central idea here is that of vocation, and of allowing God to determine the role we are to fulfill in life. We can spend many long years trying to arrange things for ourselves, and get nowhere, but sooner or later we must surrender to God’s will.
