Follow godly leaders

S NUM 16:17, 41-45 NASB

Each of you take his firepan and put incense on it, and each of you bring his censer before the L ord , two hundred and fifty firepans; also you and Aaron shall each bring his firepan." But on the next day all the congregation of the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron, saying, "You are the ones who have caused the death of the Lord ' s people." It came about, however, when the congregation had assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned toward the tent of meeting, and behold, the cloud covered it and the glory of the  lord appeared. Then Moses and Aaron came to the front of the tent of meeting, and the L ord spoke to Moses, saying, "Get away from among this congregation, that I may consume them instantly." Then they fell on their faces.

O - the observation is this that Moses was called by good to lead his people.  The people choose not to meet good face to face like Moses, but instead passively followed. Some time later the sons of korah in their comfort and arrogance rebelled against Moses leadership and this found themselves challenging God.  Not a good place to be. 

A - today as Gods people if we have excepted Christ as our lord he dwells with in is and we are not to doubt our rebel against his lordship.  We are to submit and trust the leaders God has anointed to lead us.  That is Christ first and foremost, but even the leaders of our local church that are confirmed and anointed.

P - thank you lord for this message for me today. I pray for my brothers and sisters who are struggling to find a shepherd to follow.
