I’m reading in Numbers this week as I read through the Bible this second half of 2020. It is amazing to see the Old Testament scriptures pointing directly to Christ. Below is a quick summary of what I found in Numbers 5:4-7.
The Gospel in Numbers
God Said Obey → We Will Fail → We Humbly Confess → God Fully Restores
...as the Lord said to Moses, so the people did (v4)
•We are reminded of the importance of obedience.
2. FAILURE & SEPARATION
…When a man or woman commits any of the sins that people commit by breaking faith with the Lord (v6)
•We are reminded that we will fail (when, not if)
•We are reminded our failure breaks our relationship with the Lord
3. HOPE & HUMILITY
…he shall confess his sin that he has committed (v7)
•We are reminded failure is not the end, we have hope
•We are reminded of our own humility
… he shall make full restitution for his wrong (v7)
•We are reminded God allows for and provides a way for full restoration
Where are you reading in your Bible this week?
I’d love to hear what God is showing you!
