Not Just Hearing But Doing

Key Verse

“And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover” (Numbers 9:4).

TEXT — Numbers 9:1-4


When they put up a skyscraper, they put a lot of work into the foundation before they start worrying about the walls. They would want to make sure it will keep standing. Obedience to God is the best foundation to lay when building our lives.

In our text, God instructed Moses about this vital ceremony commemorating Israel’s escape from Egyptian bondage. “And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.” They were to celebrate the Passover in remembrance of their preservation and protection in Egypt.

Moses had no opinion on this, just as our opinion about the word of God is irrelevant. We are to give people God’s instructions without adulteration or modification. Moses’ devotion to His directives highlights the sacredness of these injunctions. They are not Moses’ words but God’s words. They are to be treated with reverence, received by faith and carried out obediently without any question. Due to the sacredness of God’s word, gospel ministers and preachers must realise the great responsibility He reposed in them to teach and preach what He said without muddling up the instructions, however difficult that may be for them.

We must show gratitude to God in all of His dealings with us and our encounters with Him. Like Israel, we are to express our appreciation by responding to His word promptly, joyfully and obediently. God’s commands must always be our commission. Nothing less, nothing else.

Thought for the day

God’s words are sacred; so also must our devotion to it.
