Numbers 16:1-50

Lord, we are, so often, dragged down to the world’s way of living. Again and again, we fail to respond to “the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14). We fail to rise to the challenge of walking with You on “the high way of holiness” (Isaiah 35:8). When we rejoice in Your gift of forgiveness, help us, also, to choose the way of holiness.

Far too often, Lord, we keep our distance from You. You’re calling us into a closer walk with You – but we draw back from You. You’re seeking to change us – but we’re quite content to stay the way we are. Forgive us, Lord, and deliver us from our self-centredness. Make us the kind of people that You want us to become.
