“The primary reason for God’s insistence on men approaching Him in His own prescribed manner is that sinful man’s approach to God is only possible through God’s provision of reconciliation in Christ. Man must never imagine that he can approach God on his own terms or in his own way. To do so is to ignore God’s sovereign work in redemption and attribute redemption to the works of one’s own hands. Any means designed by men apart from God’s commands is therefore condemned in the strongest terms.

This ‘drawing near to God,’ then, is primarily to be understood in terms of the redemptive work of Christ foreshadowed in the altars and sacrifices of a ‘church underage.’ And yet it must never be thought that Christ’s redemptive work and the activities of worship are set apart from one another. Again and again in Genesis and Exodus we encounter examples of God’s displeasure at the inventiveness of men in worship precisely because worship was designed to picture Christ’s redemptive work.” (Comin, 27)
