Not only were Aaron and his sons ordained by God but they lived through the experience. For seven days they were required to stay in the tent of meeting and fulfill their duties to boil and eat the flesh and bread from the ordination offering basket, burning any leftovers. When Jesus calls us to follow him, he pulls us away from worldly concerns to meet with Him, eat His flesh which is the bread of life. When He becomes our food and drink, we not only live but find life abundantly! – Teresa
Leviticus 8: 30-36 ( ESV)
30 Then Moses took some of the anointing oil and of the blood that was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron and his garments, and also on his sons and his sons’ garments. So he consecrated Aaron and his garments, and his sons and his sons’ garments with him.
31 And Moses said to Aaron and his sons, “Boil the flesh at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and there eat it and the bread that is in the basket of ordination offerings, as I commanded, saying, ‘Aaron and his sons shall eat it.’ 32 And what remains of the flesh and the bread you shall burn up with fire. 33 And you shall not go outside the entrance of the tent of meeting for seven days, until the days of your ordination are completed, for it will take seven days to ordain you. 34 As has been done today, the Lord has commanded to be done to make atonement for you. 35 At the entrance of the tent of meeting you shall remain day and night for seven days, performing what the Lord has charged, so that you do not die, for so I have been commanded.” 36 And Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord commanded by Moses.
