As Christians, how do we live with the tension between God’s faithfulness to his promises and our continuing struggle against sin and unbelief? We have been saved in Christ, but we still wrestle with our sinful nature while we await the final fulfilment of God’s promises. Will God remain faithful even though we are faithless? Is it possible for us to put ourselves outside of God’s salvation and fall short of his promised rest?
The Book of Numbers and the events recorded in its pages foreshadow our Christian experience (1 Cor 10:1-13). As we read Numbers together in Term 4, come along to the Intro Night and orient yourself to a book that is at once very familiar and very foreign to us; join with the rest of CCG in thinking through some of the quandaries about the Christian life that Numbers raises for us.
