Redefining Roles For the Priesthood

Then the Lord said to Aaron: “You, your sons, and your relatives from the tribe of Levi will be held responsible for any offenses related to the sanctuary. But you and your sons alone will be held responsible for violations connected with the priesthood.
Numbers 18:1 NLT

It is an aspect of Change Management to keep redefining roles in the workplace. This is more so with the intervention of changes in technology. Technology redefines our services, products and even the composition of teams. God knew this before the arrival of the internet. The community was growing, so God redefined the roles and functions of the Priests. As organization grow, initial roles winch were generic acquires more responsibilities. For instance I was born to see the position of a typist, different from that of Secretary. One managed, the other typed. Today, the typist role is obsolete. Every person in the office types. Everyone has a device with attached keyboard. The RSA qualification is now obsolete. Here, God is redefining competencies. In the New Testament, the roles of the Priests changed again. John Rittenbaugh says that the roles of the Ministers today….”.. is to assist people in accessing God so there can be union with Him. The priest does this through being a mediator between God and men and through being a teacher of a way of life that improves upon the reconciliation established at the beginning of the relationship.( Forerunner Commentary ). The Minister today is a mediator, a teacher, a counselor and a prayer partner. Adapting to the new roles prevent conflicts of interest. How often do you update your staff training? To be relevant in modern times, do what God did…update roles.
