The Lord separated Israel from the world, and He separated the tribe of Levi from Israel, not that Israel would live separately from the world or that Levi would live separately from Israel, but each had been set aside for special service to God.
For the Levites this required special sacrifices, one bull for a sin offering and another bull for a burnt offering to the Lord, “Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the children of Israel, and the Levites shall be Mine” (Numbers 8:12-14).
Christians are like Levites in that we are priests, set aside for the Lord so that He can say these are Mine. You belong to the Lord, and He belongs to you.
