Numbers 29 – Jesus: The Fulfillment & Focus


Offerings, offerings, offerings! Isn’t God ever satisfied? After reading this chapter of Numbers you’ll be thinking the same thing but it’s my prayer that you would have a better understanding of God and our purpose as children of God in light of Jesus’ ministry. Let’s dig in!

There’s a lot God requires, huh? Let’s look at this through the ministry of Jesus. I read somewhere that the people needed to be constantly focused on God and the sacrifices they gave to Him. But, as Christians, we don’t make sacrifices anymore. How does this apply to us?

Jesus has taken the place of the sacrifices (offerings) given. Jesus needs to be the primary focus of our lives, just like the sacrifices were to the Israelites. Though Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross two-thousand years ago we must keep his sacrifice on our minds every day. In this chapter, verse 7b, it says, “and you shall humble yourselves; you shall not do any work.” I think that this applies to the Salvation offered in Jesus. We need to be humble and accept that we all fall short of the glory of God and we must not work. When I say work I don’t mean employment. I mean that we can’t do anything to earn our salvation; the only thing we can do is accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

May our minds be continually focused on Christ and His sacrifice.
