Leadership Promises - Following in Your Footsteps

"So Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses."  Leviticus 8:36. Aaron, like many leaders through history, received a divine calling. God chose Aaron and his sons to serve as Israel's priests and charged them with carrying out rituals and sacrifices on behalf of all Israelites.
Leadership Promises - Following in Your Footsteps
Scripture gives meticulous detail to their ordination and calling. Their conduct was to be beyond reproach-God made it crystal clear that failure to uphold His established guidelines would result in death.

Despite his high calling, Aaron at times struggled with his authority. He once caved into the depraved wishes of the people and led Israel in a pagan worship service, an abomination that led to the deaths of many Israelites. Aaron had been set apart for God's service, but on that occasion, he chose to live and lead otherwise.

The failure of a leader usually results in consequences far more grave that the fall of a non-leader; On the day Aaron failed, "about three thousand men of the people fell [died]" (Exodus 32:28). When leaders fall, followers also pay the price.
