“When I look into the mirror each morning do I really see myself for what I really am?” Of course, the question has to do with seeing one’s inner self…the part that God sees – rather than simply how our face or hair looks.
Rebellion is a word that brings a mixture of thoughts and images to mind. In most cases, the word refers to something that is negative in nature. Rebellion against authority is likely the most common. Such is the rebellion recorded in Numbers 16, lead by Korah, a Kohathite. He was joined by Dathan and Abiram who were Reubenites. Korah and his people were responsible for the care of the sanctuary. (Numbers 3:28)
Sin is a problem for all of us, even though we would often like to believe we are above or free from it. Some of those sins may be a regular part of the life of a professing Christian. Sins like anger, greed and grudge bearing to name three. Another of those sins which sometimes come right into the assembly is ritualism.
