Uncommon Ground
Thesis: The church has become so focused on making people comfortable that we have forgotten that an encounter with God should never be a common or ordinary thing.
We should always reverence the presence of God with obedience and humility.
Moses and the Burning Bush:
God called to Moses but instructed him to reverence the dirt he was standing on.
The dirt wasn’t holy
The bush wasn’t holy
The fire wasn’t holy
It was the presence of God that was holy.
Matthew 5:13
The church property, building, furniture or fixtures are NOT holy.
However God desires for us to treat His property with respect and reverence.
This is His place not ours.
Do you reverence the house of God?
God gave Moses instructions for His house and His priest even to the exact detail of the garments they were supposed to where and the colors they should decorate the tabernacle with.
Instructions for the Holy Place:
Exodus 28:33-35
Many people have preached that it is customary for the priest to tie a scarlet cord around his ankle and before he is to enter into the Holy of Holies.
There is no evidence of this in any writings other than folklore but the idea does have some merit because of this very verse we just read.
And also in Leviticus where is says that the priest should where his linen garment and tie a cord around his waste.
however the bells where attached to the ephod and the priest didn’t where the ephod into the Holy of Holies
The point in this verse is that if the priest didn’t do what God had instructed him he would die.
Aren’t you glad God doesn’t kill us whenever we mess up today?
The point is that our encounter with God should never be taken lightly or casually.
I’m not talking about clothing or style because God isn’t as concerned with style as He is with obedience.
Sometimes we get to comfortable with God and we do whatever we like when we like.
God wants us to live out His instructions not our own desires.
Aaron’s sons offer Strange Fire:
Liviticus
We should never offer strange fire before God.
Nadab and Abihu died because they lost respect for God’s instructions.
They thought they could take a shortcut.
They treated God’s holy thing as though it was common.
Aaron wasn’t even allowed to properly morn the loss of his son’s because he was anointed as the priest and had to honor his role of a priest over the role of a father.
God goes on to instruct Aaron through Moses not to come at just any time:
Don’t come at just any time:
Nadab and Abihu
Nadab and Abihu
Nadab and Abihu
Has the Salt lost it’s flavor?
Let’s Enter His presence Boldly:
Hebrews
Let’s have an uncommon encounter this morning.
Common: Ordinary or lack of special rank.
done or found often.
So what shall we do?
