Scripture Of The Day
Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
Access to God, the joy of living in the Tabernacle courts, was a great honor. God had chosen a special group of Israelites, the tribes of Levi, to serve as ministers in the Tabernacle (Numbers 3:5-51). They were the only ones who could enter the sacred rooms where God's presence resided. Because of Jesus' death on the cross, all believers today have personal access to God's presence everywhere and any time. We gain this access into God's presence by believing in the death and resurrection of Christ, and turning from our sins to God's way of living.
