Christ has called you to be a “royal priesthood” where your role is to join Him in reigning and guarding God’s glory and honor. Like the Levites, Christians have been scattered to proclaim God’s Word and guard His worship.
The Levites were not just priests—they were soldier-priests. Their priestly origin is based in righteous violence. But God put the violent nature of the Levites to good use. Not only would the priests slaughter animals on a regular basis for sacrifice—using their “swords” for God, but also all the Levites would guard the tabernacle/temple and the cities of refuge. Yahweh ordained and scattered the Levites throughout Israel in order to guard His worship.
