Lessons from Nabad and Abihu

Yesterday’s sermon was from the chronological reading we are doing as a congregation at Central. There were three main incidentlessons that we learned from Nadab and Abihu and their offering in Leviticus 10.  Here are those three lessons.

Lesson One: The Worship of God

  • Approach God in Worship Doing only what He Commands.
    • This regards God as holy and honored.
  • We are presumptuous if we think we know what God wants.
    • Isa 55:8-9
    • 1Co 2:11
  • The Regulative Principle of Worship: 1689 London Baptist Confession:

“But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God, is instituted by Himself, and so limited by His own revealed will, that He may not be worshipped according to the imaginations and devices of men, nor the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representations, or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scriptures.”

  • This principle apply to our singing, the Lord’s Supper, and all of worship.

Lesson Two: Approach God with Respect

  • Not only respect His commands (wishes, desires)
    • But also with Reverence: Lev 10:3
    • Consideration for Who God is:
      • Creator
      • Provider
      • Savior
  • We cannot approach God flippantly.
    • Respect impacts my
      • Attitude toward and in worship
      • Attendance and Attention in worship
      • Activity in worship

Lesson Three: The Priority of God in my Life

  • Mat 6:33
  • Mat 10:34-39
  • Col 3:1-4
  • God and His Will come first!
