Full Measure

Schloss Mittersill Castle in Austria

Many years ago at night, it was out on an open deck at this Castle Mittersill that I asked God in prayer to serve Him. Whatever I was supposed to do to fulfill a purpose He intends and not of my own wishes. Even while I get in the way at times. 

Today, before my work out and cardio, I read through Exodus 28. About how Aaron and his sons were made ready and adorned for life of service in the most holy of places.

“For Aaron’s sons you shall make coats and sashes and caps. You shall make them for glory and beauty. And you shall put them on Aaron your brother, and on his sons with him, and shall anoint them and ordain them and consecrate them, that they may serve me as priests. You shall make for them linen undergarments to cover their naked flesh. They shall reach from the hips to the thighs; and they shall be on Aaron and on his sons when they go into the tent of meeting or when they come near the altar to minister in the Holy Place, lest they bear guilt and die. This shall be a statute forever for him and for his offspring after him.

Some years ago while reading through a newly delivered copy of Discipleship Journal, I found this article and had to re-write it by hand. Because I knew that I would want it for a lifetime. And here it is over 20-years later, I have read it yet again. Only this time, from personal study notes in a text file, I’ve pasted it here for your reading as well.
