"And you shall slaughter the ram, and take some of the blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear and on the lobe of his son's right ears and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet, and sprinkle the rest of the blood around on the altar."

In the act of consecrating, anointing and ordination of Aaron and his sons, we see the instruction in regards to the application of the lamb's blood upon the priests. In the application of the blood to the right ear lobes, thumbs and big toes,  we see key elements of God' s call for believers lives today. This attests to the fact of our ears opened and listening for the Lord's call and words for our lives, our hands placed to and filled with His work, our feet, always walking in His path. Called by Peter, a royal priesthood, we are now set apart for God's work in this world.

Ministry Opportunities - Amidst the Covid and its variants that have run through the world this last year or so, may go through a variety of differing scenarios. Some go on as they have, others with waning confidence in the vaccine, still many fear filled, others with cautious methodical movement, some still healing from the effects of Covid, others going through financial, health or family issues. The variations are multiplied by the changes. In all of this child of God, look for the opportunities to share a word of encouragement, to offer to pray and to share the love of Christ.
