Caution

We can serve and worship the Lord freely, but we also have to exercise caution, as evidenced by what the Lord said to Moses after the death of two of his nephews,

“Now the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered profane fire before the LORD, and died; and the LORD said to Moses: ‘Tell Aaron your brother not to come at just any time into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud above the mercy seat’” (Leviticus 16:1-2). 

The Lord had no interest in seeing Aaron die, as two of his sons had when they were reckless in worship. 

Likewise, the Lord wants a relationship with us, but we have to understand just who He is.
