DCLM Daily Manna 19 August 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi
TOPIC: Sold Out To God!
TEXT: NUMBERS 18:1-7
KEY VERSE: “And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation”
MESSAGE: When the children of Levi separated themselves unto Moses in Exodus 32:26, little did they know they were becoming God’s property. From that moment onward, God became their Father, Master and Portion. What a blessing that was!
In our reading today, God charged Aaron, his house and the whole house of Levi to bear the burden of the sanctuary. With this, they strictly belonged to Him and were to mind the things related to His service. God’s service requires total commitment. He does not want strangers to be involved in divine service; except those who have sold themselves to Him at will. DCLM Daily Manna 19 August 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi
Like the house of Levi, New Testament believers are to be fully consecrated to God without reservations. We are now “Levites”, separated unto God the Father, by accepting the death of His Son, Jesus. When compared to the Old Covenant, the New Covenant is a better covenant. God is not expecting less from us, having given His best (Jesus) on the cross at Calvary.
Every believer must wholeheartedly give his best to the One who never withheld His best from us. At creation, He gave man the best and made him the crown of His creations with all things subject unto him. At Calvary, He gave His only begotten Son to pay for man’s highest debt. And He will finally give believers who endure to the end, the best of places – heaven. No price is too much to pay; and nothing can ever equal the best God has given to us.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If God has given us His best, we must give Him our all.
