“But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.” Num. 3:38
I wonder how many times we have entered the sanctuary, the place where we worship the Lord with the brethren, and have been a stranger to the Lord all week. We cannot allow ourselves to be all caught up in the affairs of this world all week long and then think we can casually stroll into church Sunday morning and everything is alright. Aaron and his sons had the duty of keeping charge of the sanctuary. They were to keep the purity there. You and I have charge over our personal sanctuary, the temple of the Holy Ghost. We must not embrace anything strange to the Lord. We must not allow our temple to be defiled. If we all keep our temple pure, God will have no problem with us when we show up Sunday morning.
