Read Leviticus 8:1 through 10:20

What does it take to approach God? Is it good intentions? Or a proper effort through some sort of trial and error? Nadab and Abihu discovered that disobedience can be deadly.

Moses then said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke of when he said: ‘Among those who approach me I will be proved holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored.’” Aaron remained silent (Leviticus 10:3).

Aaron’s sons failed to follow God’s instructions for with unauthorized fire. Whatever their intentions, the result was death. God does not tolerate disobedience. coming into His presence. They had dishonored Him Neither will He tolerate anyone who denies His Son.

Jesus declared that He is the gate—the one way toGod. No one can approach the Father except throughHim. Any other means of approaching God will ultimately end in death and eternal separation from Him. Clothed in Christ and cleansed by His blood, the children of God are able to approach and honor Him.

Prayer Suggestion:

Heavenly Father, I come into Your presence clothed in the love of Your Son, Jesus.
