Numbers 20:1-13 Culture of Complaint (Nov 27)


The wilderness journey is about faith and obedience. Yet the children of God of the Exodus generation displayed a remarkable lack of faith given their privileges. In this sermon, we learn four way ways NOT to be faithful in the pilgrim journey to the land of blessing: complain loudly and often; despise God's provision; preach your own gospel; and insert cool technology in the place of obedience. Despite this lack of faith, God graces his people with living water from the rock that 'is Christ', according to the apostle Paul.
