“…Whenever the cloud lifted…the people of Israel would follow it…so they camped or traveled at the Lord’s command, and they did whatever the Lord told them to do through Moses.” -Numbers 9:15-23 (selected)

What a great picture of the Christian life, as we follow the Holy Spirit’s prompting and listen to the authorities in Christ that God has given us.

Indeed, the Christian life is one of LISTENING and FOLLOWING, HEARING and DOING, responding both to the leading of the Spirit and the leaders of the Church.

Father, settle my heart so I can hear your Spirit, and settle my pride so I can follow your servants.
