Where There Is Obedience, There Is Blessing.
‘As the Lord had commanded...’ (1, 5, 7, 21, 26, 29, 31-32, 42-43): Obedience to God - this is the most important thing. ‘And Moses blessed them’(43): Where there is obedience, there is blessing - there’s a vital connection between the two. In Jesus, we see perfect obedience: ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work’(John 4:34). Jesus was fully obedient to the Father’s will: ‘He became obedient unto death, even death on a Cross’(Philippians 2:8). Through His obedience, there is blessing for us: ‘by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous’(Romans 5:19). We look beyond the Old Testament priesthood to Christ, the ‘High Priest of the good things that have come’- By ‘His own blood’, He has secured for us ‘an eternal redemption’(Hebrews 9:11-12).
