The tribe of Levi enjoyed a privileged position among...

The Levites … shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings; they shall attend to it and camp around the tabernacle.
Numbers 1:50

The tribe of Levi enjoyed a privileged position among the people of Israel. God had sanctified them for Himself, selecting them from the nation for His service. They were responsible for the tabernacle, God’s dwelling among His people. The people always had to take this tent, which could be dismantled, with them on the wilderness journey. One of the most important tasks of the Levites was to carry the dwelling place and all its furnishings.

Today it is the church (the assembly) that is the house of God – His testimony on earth (1 Timothy 3:15). Just like Israel, the church, i.e. the entire company of all born again Christians, is still on its journey of some two thousand years. Eternity in glory with the Lord still lies ahead of us. On this “wilderness journey” we are called upon to bear witness for God. Every believer is, so to speak, a Levite, even you. Are you one of the bearers?

The tribe of Levi comprised three large families:

The Gershonites carried the tent, the coverings and the curtains. - We must see to it that our conduct is in agreement with the Word of God. It is a question of the spiritual state of the church.
The sons of Merari carried the boards, pillars and their sockets. How important it is to uphold the principles that God has laid down in His Word for His church and their gatherings!
The Kohathites carried the smaller items of the equipment. These depict the Person of the Lord Jesus Himself. Let us hold fast both Him and the truth regarding His Person.
Nor should we overlook anything, but faithfully uphold God’s dwelling on our journey to our promised land above.

Today’s reading: Joshua 13:1-14 · 1 Corinthians 11:1-19
