Season 1 Episode 4 • Spies • Numbers Chapters 13&14

Week of March 3, 2019
Numbers 12:1-16
This account offers a picture of how we are to respond to God when He reveals Himself to us. God’s self-revelation shows us two things: who He is and who we are. When we see God for who He is and what He has done, we can properly see ourselves for who we are. 
In what ways does seeing the truth of God’s character humble you?

Numbers 13:1-33
The Israelites had left slavery in Egypt and endured a trek through the wilderness to make it to the promised land, which their sin prevented them from entering. Likewise, through Jesus, we are freed from the slavery to sin, yet we continue to live in the wilderness—a fallen and broken world. However, in light of eternity, our journey to our promised land is short, and we are called to trust God in faithfulness as we journey on, placing our hope in His promise to bring us home to the place of our rest.
How might the hope of what God has in store for you in heaven change the way you approach each day now?

Numbers 14:1-25
God invites us to join Him on His mission of making His presence known. We do this by proclaiming the gospel, but also by praying earnestly for those who don’t know Him, that they might repent of their sin, turn to Jesus, and experience life.
Who will you pray for who doesn’t know Jesus? How will you tell them about Jesus this week?

Numbers 14:26-45
The worst place for us to be is in sin because it disrupts our fellowship with God. Having anything without God is far worse than having nothing with God. We need to remember this, let God drive it into our hearts, and be quick to grieve over our sin—not its consequences. When we do, we will experience the freedom of living in the presence of our mighty God who loves us beyond measure.
How have you grieved over sin recently—have you focused on the sin itself or the consequences of sin?

Numbers 16:1-50
We are all called to take the message of the gospel to a world that wants nothing to do with it. Our job is simple: live the gospel; preach the gospel. But because the gospel is offensive, people will despise us. Like Moses, we must remember it is not really us who they despise and reject, it is Christ. And so, like Moses again but even more so like Christ, we must show compassion to the people we have been called to love and serve as we pray that through our kindness and perseverance, they might be reached with the gospel we proclaim.
How does praying for people change the way you see them?
