And he stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped.
The grumbling of the people of Israel had kindled the wrath of the Lord against them. As a result, a plague was sent against them.
But Moses acted as an intercessor for the people and told Aaron to take a censer full of the alter fire to the people to make atonement for their sin. As Aaron rushed to do this and avert the wrath of God, some were already dead as a result of this plague.
But then, the plague stopped.
Like Aaron, we carry the censer of the gospel that is able to stop of the plague of sin in the lives of people all around us. Like the people of Israel those all around us are oblivious to the seriousness of our predicament. People are under a curse of sin and, unless there is intervention, it will end in death.
But just like Moses intervened on behalf of the people, so too Jesus is our great deliverer.
Jesus, through His death, burial and resurrection, breaks the plague of sin and, in fact stands between us and the wrath of God.
Like Aaron, we are carries of the remedy and the intervention of God to man’s problem. Where ever you go, you carry that solution by the Holy Spirit.
Who is God send you to rescue from sin? Who has God surrounded you with, in need of salvation?
PRAYER: Father, thank you for your precious son Jesus who has rescued me from sin. Help me to see the plague of sin and those you have sent me to rescue in Jesus name. I ask for boldness, faith and strength to do your work, in Jesus name, Amen.
