About the Series

July 2016

The map of the Old Testament is dotted from east to west with the story of a family with an intriguing past. Their great-great-great grandpa (Korah) rebelled against Moses and suffered the consequences (Numbers 16), but God showed them grace (Numbers 26:9-11).

For centuries, Korah’s descendants willingly served in the tabernacle, and later in the temple, as janitors, maintenance personnel, and musicians. They were known as “doorkeepers” because they made sure the doors were unlocked and the lights were on.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could travel back in time and ask them, “Why did you volunteer to serve so faithfully behind the scenes? Why were you willing to do the thankless jobs that few others wanted to do?” Thankfully, they answered those questions when they wrote Psalm 84.

Why be a doorkeeper in 2016? Why serve at this time in this place? May God use this important July series to revive our motivations to serve and make serving fun again!
