Leviticus 8* The consecration of Aaron and his sons. (1-13) The offeringsof consecration. (14-36)1-13 The consecration of Aaron and his sons had been delayeduntil the tabernacle had been prepared, and the laws of thesacrifices given. Aaron and his sons were washed with water, tosignify that they ought to purify themselves from all sinfuldispositions, and ever after to keep themselves pure. Christwashes those from their sins in his own blood whom he makeskings and priests to our God, #Re 1:5,6|; and those that drawnear to God must be washed in pure water, #Heb 10:22|. Theanointing of Aaron was to typify the anointing of Christ withthe Spirit, which was not given by measure to him. All believershave received the anointing. 14-36 In these types we see our great High Priest, even ChristJesus, solemnly appointed, anointed, and invested with hissacred office, by his own blood, and the influences of his HolySpirit. He sanctifies the ordinances of religion, to the benefitof his people and the honour of God the Father; who for his sakeaccepts our worship, though it is polluted with sin. We may alsorejoice, that he is a merciful and faithful High Priest, full ofcompassion to the feeble-minded and tempest-tossed soul. Alltrue Christians are consecrated to be spiritual priests. Weshould seriously ask ourselves, whether in our daily walk westudy to maintain this character? and abound in spiritualsacrifices, acceptable to God through Christ? If so, still thereis no cause for boasting. Let us not despise our fellow-sinners;but remembering what we have done, and how we are saved, let usseek and pray for their salvation.
