Dedication to the Lord 

The Lord spoke to Aaron,

“Everything that first opens the womb of all flesh, which they bring to the LORD, whether man or beast, shall be yours; nevertheless the firstborn of man you shall surely redeem, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem” (Numbers 18:15).

This referred to the time when the Lord took the firstborn of Egypt and so the Israelites would remember every time the firstborn of theirs, whether man or animal, was born that the Lord had redeemed Israel out of Egypt and brought them to their own land. 

He wanted Israel then, and the church now, to remember without ceasing all that He has done for us, because He wants a relationship with us.
