July 28th – Numbers 8:4

Numbers 8:4

God gave Moses detailed instructions how the tabernacle lampstand was to be made, and where it was to be placed. And as it was the only light source, it was the job of Aaron and his sons to make sure the lamp burned continuously, both day and night. The lampstand is a symbol of Christ Jesus, the true Light of the world. (John 8:12) The One who leads all out of darkness, and into His saving light. (1 Peter 2:9) And as Christian’s, we in turn are the lamps supporting Him. For the Lord calls us to be examples of His shining light in a spiritually darkened world. (Matt. 5:14-16) Dr. Charles Stanley says our mission as Christians is to be, “lights burning with the fire of heaven.” So today and everyday let’s lead lives burning day and night with the light of Jesus. And out of love for our Savior, joyfully spread the saving message of the Gospel, so that all will praise our Father in heaven!
