It’s bittersweet, isn’t it? To think that Moses spent so many years serving the Lord, yet one mistake cost him such a great deal.
In our small group last night, we talked about Romans 6:36, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Though the verse is probably familiar, how often do we behave in a way that suggests we don’t really believe the wages of sin is death? Or how often do we behave as if our hard work will earn eternal life, rather than it being a gift of God?
For Moses, the wages of his sin was death - death without reaching the full measure of what God desired to give him. What sin are we letting creep in and what blessing of the Lord is being cut out of our life as a result of failing to repent?
