All to Jesus, I Surrender (Numbers 6:2–21)

A major doctrinal recovery during the Reformation was the biblical teaching of the priesthood of all believers. This doctrine is as old as the book of Numbers. We see this, for example, in the text before us, which records, not Levitical priests serving the Lord, but rather any Israelite man or woman having opportunity to do so. Though their ministry did not involve the tabernacle, it was indeed holy service.

This text brings to a close the tragic account of Israel’s sin of unbelief as they stood on the threshold of God’s Promised Land. Just when we think that things could not get any worse, their belief becomes blatantly exponential—seemingly boundless. In this account we learn that not only will Israel not believe God when he promises blessings; neither will they believe him when he promises them judgement. It is a text from which we do well to learn.
