Question to Ponder

I am currently working on a post about the death of Nadab and Abihu. Actually, it is more about the cause of their death. If you would like to get a head start on the post, you can be reading Leviticus chapters 9 and 10.

Today, I want you to ask yourself a question that was once posed to me. The question came from a local pastor in response to the question I had brought to him. The question I had asked was one everyone asks at some point in their lives. While I won't be specific at this time, the question was this: what am I supposed to do about ______?

At first I was stunned with what he asked me. I could not answer immediately. We prayer together and I left. A counselling session that took all of 15 minutes has made an eternal impact on my life. After some time of meditation, prayer, and reflection on God's word, the answer came. I don't know how many times I have used this encounter to counsel with others who have come to me with questions concerning choices that had to be made. Thank God for a wise pastor.

The question he posed? What is God willing to accept from you?

I am sure you would like to know more about the pastor and Crossroads Assembly of God. Stop in and let him know you got the link here.

Hi There.

I am putting together at this time, in response to your post, what will no doubt be just one of many answers to 'the cause' of the deaths of Aaron's sons.

The answer I imagine will be found in Leviticus 10:3. At least the one I'm working on.

Many thanks for the study question. It all adds to my learning curve in coming to know and understand God.

When you post, I will leave a comment after placing my answer online at Kingdom Fellowship.

God Bless You.
