All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the children of Israel were forty and eight cities with their suburbs. These cities were every one with their suburbs round about them: thus were all these cities. And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which He sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that He sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand. There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass. (Jos 21:41-45)
We are called to be a Kingdom of priests, an Holy nation, a peculiar people. GOD has work for His people to do, to be about His business, and to glorify and testify of Him, not only through our lives, but also with our words. Our words and deeds ought to be holy and to honour our Lord, who gave Himself for us. We ought to also, appreciate and honour those who minister in the Word and in positions of service and authority within the body under the headship of Jesus Christ.
No matter where GOD has called us to serve, or how, we ought to honour Him, hold fast to our profession as His people, and through His Word, in the power of the Holy Spirit that is within us, direct others to Christ and His great Salvation through repentance and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. He has called all His people to the ministry of reconciliation, that we might meet the needs of those around us who are hurting and in need. He has commanded His body to love one another, even as He also loved us, and to disciple one another in His Word until we all come into the full measure of Him. He has commissioned His servants and friends to be witnesses unto Him, that as we go, we may take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world, that all who hear the Good News and believe might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
