Exodus 29* The sacrifice and ceremony for the consecration of thepriests. (1-37) The continual burnt-offerings, God's promise todwell among Israel. (38-46)1-37 Aaron and his sons were to be set apart for the priest'soffice, with ceremony and solemnity. Our Lord Jesus is the greatHigh Priest of our profession, called of God to be so; anointedwith the Spirit, whence he is called Messiah, the Christ;clothed with glory and beauty; sanctified by his own blood; madeperfect, or consecrated through sufferings, #Heb 2:10|. Allbelievers are spiritual priests, to offer spiritual sacrifices,#1Pe 2:5|, washed in the blood of Christ, and so made to our Godpriests, #Re 1:5,6|. They also are clothed with the beauty ofholiness, and have received the anointing, #1Jo 2:27|. TheSpirit of God is called the finger of God, (#Lu 11:20|, comparedwith #Mt 12:28|,) and by him the merit of Christ is applied toour souls. This consecration signifies the admission of a sinnerinto the spiritual priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices,acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 38-46 A lamb was to be offered upon the altar every morning,and a lamb every evening. This typified the continualintercession which Christ ever lives to make for his church.Though he offered himself but once for all, that one offeringthus becomes a continual offering. This also teaches us to offerto God the spiritual sacrifices of prayer and praise every day,morning and evening. Our daily devotions are the most needful ofour daily works, and the most pleasant of our daily comforts.Prayer-time must be kept up as duly as meal-time. Those starvetheir own souls, who keep not up constant attendance on thethrone of grace; constancy in religion brings in the comfort ofit.
