Despite its boring title, the book of Numbers contains high drama. The book starts with a census of God’s people and the centrality of God’s holiness. Despite God’s goodness, complaints and arguments threat to divide the people. The book culminates with a prophecy of hope. Join us as we journey with God’s people across the wilderness in preparation for the promised land!
PART 1: HOLINESS
In the book of Numbers, the holiness of God was meant to be central to everything the Israelites did. The descriptions are extremely detailed. Despite the Temple and Levitical system of worship being obsolete, is there something Christians can learn from this old system? Join us to find out.
PART 2: TRUST
Capturing the promised land appeared impossible for the 12 Israelite spies. The land was good, but it was too well fortified. Their trust in God was diminished. Their negativity permeated the Israelite camp, and, as a result, the nation experienced 40 years of wilderness wanderings. How do we trust God when things seem impossible? Join us to find out.
PART 3: THE ENEMY WITHIN
Who is our greatest enemy? Is it the evil around us, or the evil within us? Israel thought it was Moab, yet they soon discovered that, despite God’s goodness and protection, their own sin was their greatest enemy. Join us as we talk about how to win the most important war – the one against ourselves!
