Doing Our Part

But the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that there will be no wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel. So the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony. – Numbers 1:53

What is your “part” in God’s work and plan on earth?

Among the post-slavery Israelites, each tribe had a part in the work of defending and transporting the entire nation to the land promised by God. In particular, the Levites were responsible for all the sacred things. While the other tribes provided the soldiers, the Levites provided something else.

God does not give the same work or task to every person. Certainly, we all have the same goal, to glorify God by blessing the nations with His truth, but each person’s “part” in reaching that goal is different. So, what is your “part” in that work?

Don’t you think it would be good to discover it, and do it, faithfully, with integrity, until Christ returns?

The world has a problem; it seeks to honor, uphold, exonerate, and generally praise itself. Our place and the place of the entire world system is to praise and exalt God. – Roger Anderson
