Leviticus 8:22-24, “22 And he brought the second ram, the ram of consecration. Then Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram, 23 and Moses killed it. Also he took some of its blood and put it on the tip of Aaron’s right ear, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. 24 Then he brought Aaron’s sons. And Moses put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet. And Moses sprinkled the blood all around on the altar”
Right ear: Do you regularly listen to God through His Word? It amazes me how many people claim that age speaks to them, yet they have a poor dedication to God’s Word. Maybe this is why so many that claim to speak for God, or say they have a Word from God speak things that do not agree with, conform to, or stay within the boundary lines of the Word of God. When things do not align with the Word of God, then they are not the Word of God. This is why I believe the Lord has lead us to read though His Word in this way in this year.
Right hand: There is a term called orthodoxy with means right doctrine, which is what would have been described above. Orthopraxy has to do with right actions. The right hand signified carrying out what the Word of God says. If one is a Christian they will read and do the Word of God. We have been given holy assignments, not to be saved, but because we are saved. Rich Mullins had a song concerning faith and works. Faith without works is dead…like a screen door in a submarine…faith without works it just ain’t happening.
Right foot: We are called to live holy lives. Perhaps there are times when your flesh, like mine, screams and begs to disobey the Lord. But the Spirit of God always commands us to submit to God, die to self, obey and glorify Christ in all we are and do. Holiness is not a popular teaching in the church it would seem today. Romans 12:1 commands us to live holy lives, Ephesians 4 commands us to put off the old man (unholy man) and put on the new man (Christ the holy man). Without holiness no man will see the Lord. Hebrew 12:14-17 states, “14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16 lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. 17 For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears”.
