Yay for Jesus

I confessed my sins to my discipler today and it was great to pray with her, easy peasy... but gosh imagine if I lived in the days of Moses! The preparation of the animals (and the animals prolly smelled), putting blood all over, even on the ears of Aaron and his sons! (and the blood prolly smelled) and ALL the details we have been reading... and all that just so I could be forgiven for my sins, sheesh. And, if I had to confess my sins tomorrow... uggghhhh we would have to clean everything up (not like they had antibacterial soap and running water, or sponges and stuff... I'd want disinfectant and air freshner hehe) and imagine putting forth all that blood and guts effort again and again. OMGS yaaaay for Jesus and the new covenant!

And poor Aaron, gosh losing 2 of his sons in one day :(. I'm glad he didn't get bitter and resent God (and hopefully he doesn't later)... I'm glad Moses was there to counsel Aaron :(.

I love how Aaron was obedient to God despite seeing his two sons burn before his eyes. He did not retaliate.
"Aaron remained silent." This shows his self control and restraint in seeing the bigger picture. God is most holy and must distinguish that. I don't know what I would do...cry like a mad woman..that's for sure!!
