Numbers 3:13 Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am the LORD.
When all the firstborn of Egypt died God set aside for Himself the firstborn of Israel. He had saved them from certain death by the death of the lamb. He owned their very lives now.
He will take the Levites in place of the firstborn in Israel but there is still a great lesson here.
If you have been rescued or saved from certain death and Hell by the Lord Jesus then you belong to Him.
I have considered that I belong to Him most of my life. I am the firstborn. I have been saved and rescued from death by Him.
I want to serve Him with all that I have and am. I want to give to Him what I have. I want Him to be the reason that I live and breathe. I want my things that He gives me to count for Him also.
The firstborn belong to the Lord!
