“Whoever touches them will become consecrated.” – “Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”

Today’s devotion comes from Leviticus 6:14-18.

“‘Now this is the law of the grain offering: the sons of Aaron shall present it before the LORD in front of the altar.  Then one of them shall lift up from it a handful of the fine flour of the grain offering, with its oil and all the incense that is on the grain offering, and he shall offer it up in smoke on the altar, a soothing aroma, as its memorial offering to the LORD.  What is left of it Aaron and his sons are to eat.  It shall be eaten as unleavened cakes in a holy place;  they are to eat it in the court of the tent of meeting.  It shall not be baked with leaven.  I have given it as their share from My offerings by fire;  it is most holy, like the sin offering and the guilt offering.  Every male among the sons of Aaron may eat it;  it is a permanent ordinance throughout your generations, from the offerings by fire to the LORD.  Whoever touches them will become consecrated.’”  Leviticus 6:14-18.


The last verse of today’s Scripture, “Whoever touches them will become consecrated.”, reminds me of the precious words of God, “the Word of Life”, as stated in the following Scripture.  

“What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life— and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—  what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us;  and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.  These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.”  1 John 1:4.

Every day we receive from God the daily manna of God’s Word.  “He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.”  Deuteronomy 8:3. 

Sanctify them in the truth;  Your word is truth.”  John 17:17.

“… Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.”  Ephesians 5:25-27.
