Now, Jesus stands in the gap between us and God, saving us from the wrath we deserve. I have to think back and determine whether I have rebelled against God unintentionally in my complaining to him about things he has permitted to happen to those I love, like the congregation of Israel. Let us be more mindful of our thoughts and prayers and ensure they do not border on rebellion or disrespect against the one who loves us the most.
And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed. Numbers 16:47-48
