Each Tribe, therefore each member of that tribe, was assigned a position and a purpose by God. Their task was to be in their place doing what our God has instructed.
Are we any different? Our task assigned by God is the same as Jesus' ... Luke 19:10 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
What was lost? Man's relationship with God; man's spiritual life; man's joy and happiness; man's purpose and position. All lost in the Garden of Eden and all regained by the Sacrifice of Jesus. We are to be about telling the God News.
Are you in position, working at the assigned task?
Mark 11:27 - 12:17
When our fear of people is greater than our fear of God we have a problem. When we know the truth but refuse to accept the truth we have a problem. This fear of man and denial of the truth of God silences God in our daily life.
Verse 7 is the essence of lost man's depravity - "Here comes the heir to this estate. Let's kill Him and get the estate for ourselves!' Man wants the things of God, the blessings of God without the interference of God.
Pure worship, joyful exciting worship, directed Godward and not man ward is joined by God singing and shouting with us. Why don't we look for Him at our next Worship Service?
