“Moses said: “This is the thing that God has commanded that you do, then the Glory of God will appear to you.”
~ Leviticus 9:6

After instructing the priests how to perform the sacrifices, Moses reassures them that consequently God would appear.

Why was this necessary?

Because some people believe that when it comes to a relationship with God, mere emotion is sufficient and action is optional. While it’s true that a mitzvah performed without emotion is lacking, nonetheless, it’s the deed that counts.

Just like no bride agreed to marriage without a ring, so too it’s our display of trust that God responds to.
