1 Chronicles 6
-This chapter gives many names associated with the Tabernacle and later Temple worship systems of Israel. It focuses on the sons of Levi, from which Aaron and Moses came. It mentions Samuel, who was a great prophet and almost single handedly revived the nation in the time of the judges. The chapter also goes into depth on the worship leaders in song that were appointed by David, the king, in the house of the LORD, after the ark rested there (1 Chronicles 6:31). Aaron and his son’s role was important for all the work of the most holy place and in making atonement for Israel before the LORD according to all that Moses, the servant of God, had commanded (1 Chronicles 6:49). These were the high priestly line and were given lands in the different parts of the nation for settlement and cities of refuge (Numbers 35). *Application* The work of the most holy place is indeed given credence when we look at passages like this one. God wants men of dedication to lead in the worship of Him and there is a place for those who are truly called to this type of ministry. In our churches today we see many of the same principles at work, or at least we should. Provide for God’s people to maintain the work of ministry, whether it be the teaching aspects, the organizational parts, the arts and music, or other God given responsibilities. Enable the work of the LORD to run smoothly without interference. They are the equippers of the saints (Ephesians 4:4-16).
