1. Who is next on God’s list of Law-breakers (v.4, 6), and what is the suprise here?
2. Today, we are God’s covenant people in Christ. How do we hear the warning of these verses alongside 1 Peter 4.17 and 2 Corinthians 5.10?
3. God’s people trampled on sensitive consciences (forcing the Nazirites to break their vows), and silenced preachers (vv.11-12). God therefore promises a ‘car crash’ (vv.13-14). Is this fair? And how do we heed this warning?
A Prayer to Pray
God have mercy on me, a sinner. I trample on other people, I shut my ears to Your Word. I spurn Your holiness, and enthrone my sinful desires. Christ have mercy. Bring me to Your feet, as one who knows the taste of repentant tears, and feels the kiss of forgiveness. Amen.
