The Cleansing of the Levites

Numbers 8:5-11 shows what had to be done to cleanse the Levites both outwardly and inwardly, “that they may perform the work of the LORD” (Numbers 8:11).
They had to clean their bodies and clothing, plus shave all their bodies (Numbers 8:5-7). Then had to bring a young bull with its grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil, and they would have to take another young bull as a sin offering. Once they had those things, the Levites went before the tabernacle of meeting, along with the whole congregation of the children of Israel so they could lay their hands on the Levites. Aaron would then offer the Levites before the Lord like a wave offering from the children of Israel (Numbers 8:8-11).
It was an involved process. Likewise, now, if you desire to go before the Lord, you must be cleansed of your sin. This happens when you are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Have you done that before?
