DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Numbers 21-23
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you; pray to the LORD that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.” (Numbers 21:7-9)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is a covenant keeping God (Deuteronomy 7:9), and God is always faithful to bless all His people who keep His commandments (Psalm 25:10). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about the victories that God provided to the people of Israel, then the circumstance with the serpents and the raised fiery bronze serpent, how Balak sent for Balaam and Balaam had an encounter with God’s Angel on the way, and the talking Donkey, and about the prophecies of Balaam. In a similar manner, based on the Bible, it is always important to keep in mind that, all people have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3), but that believers in God are saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-10). And, based on the fulfillment of God’s prophecies, the Lord Jesus Christ was lifted up on the cross of Calvary for the salvation all the people who will seek for God’s salvation (John 3:16-17 and John 12:32). Thank God for the sacrifice and the eternal salvation that the Lord Jesus Christ provided for all of us! Amen.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
