The Right To Holy Things

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

I read a daily devotional called Faith's Checkbook by C H Spurgeon. It is online if you would like to check it out, (
s/fcb/fcb.htm.) Today's devotional really jumped out it me as I was reading it and my spirit is telling me that someone needs to read this today. God has so many promises for His children and we need to read them so that we know them and can live our daily lives in faith, trusting in Him who cannot lie! I pray that this promise blesses you as it has me.
In Jesus Name

The Right To Holy Things

But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it, and he that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat - Leviticus 22:11

Strangers, sojourners, and servants upon hire were not to eat of holy things. It is so in spiritual matters still. But two classes were free at the sacred table, those who were bought with the priest's money and those who were born into the priest's house. Bought and born, these were the two indisputable proofs of a right to holy things.

Bought. Our great High Priest has bought with a price all those who put their trust in Him. They are His absolute property -- altogether the LORD's. Not for what they are in themselves, but for their owner's sake they are admitted into the same privileges which He Himself enjoys, and "they shall eat of his meat." He has meat to eat which worldlings know not of. "Because ye belong to Christ," therefore shall ye share with your LORD.

Born. This is an equally sure way to privilege. If born in the Priest's house we take our place with the rest of the family. Regeneration makes us fellow-heirs and of the same body, and, therefore, the peace, the joy, the glory, which the Father has given to Christ, Christ has given to us. Redemption and regeneration have given us a double claim to the divine permit of this promise.

    Thanks for the link to the devotionals. We need all the spiritual reinforcement we can get, some days more than others. Hang in there and keep spreading the word when you are moved to do so. -- Lou

    I am bought, I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb Jesus and I have the nature of God because of the free gift of Righteousness which I got by coming to the cross of Jesus of grace and truth because of the free gift of faith that He gave to me and I made the most important decision to come to the cross.

    I am now filled to over flowing with Holy Spirit who seals all believers unto the day of the salvation of our bodies since our spirits are already re born from above with the new nature of God and we are washing our minds daily with the reading of the word of God to transform our thinking.

    I just love this blog. Thank you Greg.
