Remember that wherever you are or whatever you're facing....GOD KNOWS!

     

 

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

 

When we flew to Washington DC a couple of months back, I drove up to the airport and parked my car. It is MY car! I have the title to it. I paid sales tax on it. And, I’ve been paying personal property tax since I got it! It is MY car! But, when we landed back in KC they had the audacity to make me redeem MY car! I mean it’s not like MY car ran up any expenses while we were away. It used no oil, no gas. And, as we’ve learned from lack of security provided at the airport, my cost should have been minimal.(Although Security is by contract supposed to monitor this parking lot, the body of a man who committed suicide in his car, perhaps in this same lot, wasn’t discovered for months!) But I was required to redeem MY car! There are free “Park and Rides” around the city, in rural Jackson County, Cass County, and even there in Platte County. But, could I just get off the plane, get in MY car and go? No way! I had to redeem MY car!

 

Sounds silly doesn’t it?

 

In Numbers 3, God reminds the children of Israel that He owns them. Not only was He their Creator; not only did He daily provide for them; He bought their freedom through the death of the Egyptian firstborn. He “bought” their firstborn by making the angel of death pass over the homes of obedient believers who did as He instructed. They are, they were HIS! He owns them. So, when He chose to select the children the Aaron to be His priests, rather than the firstborn, He allowed them to redeem their firstborn. (Because the number of firstborn exceeded that of the children of Aaron.)

 

Okay, so what lesson can I take from this reading? As much as I may fuss and cry, redemption is a necessity! (I couldn’t very well walk home, could I? It takes me an hour just to drive to the airport from my house.) I am His to do as He wills - His will be done! Instead of kicking against it, my attitude, my manner of life should be of that of Paul who said, “It is not I who lives, but Christ Jesus living in me.” (This isn’t because I’m so good; I fall in too many ways, far too often!)

 

A brother said it better than I can when he sent me a reminder yesterday. “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.” Philippians 2:13.
Grow up Jack! Quit being silly! Let Him work in you! He redeemed you! You are His!
Don’t be silly like me! Be not conformed to this world but be TRANSFORMED by the continual renewal of your mind; being redeemed be changed by His Word.

Jack
