Echoes of the Holy Spirit: Leading & Helping
Numbers 11:16-30

Pastor Matt Mulder

This passage hits a fair bit on the calling and ordination of elders within the body of God's people, but more importantly, the Spirit is put on them - the same Spirit that was on Moses. Interestingly, the Bible makes specific mention that the elders prophesied when the Spirit caem on them, but only that one time. This is a bibliocal example of how the Spirit may work in people. Sometimes people are blessed with being filled with and empowered by the Spirit in a 'tangible' manner over andover again, but other times, the Spirit fills and empowers once or twice, and never again. The crux of this narrative is in verse 29 when Moses says that he wishes that the Lord would put his Spirit on all of his people.

Echoes of the Holy Spirit: Skills and Gifts

Pastor Michael Kooy

Whatever we do, we do it all for the glory of God. Our life is transformed by serving. Bezalel and Oholiab were given skill in craftsmanship and teaching by God's Spirit. These gifts, like all other gifts of God's Spirit, are to be used for the common good (1 Corinthians 12:7). We stay in the flow of the Spirit when we use our skills to serve God and others. These skils lend beauty and grace to the lives around us, reflecting the flourishing God gives in creation.

In the fallen world, we encounter frustrationa nd problems in using our skills and knowledge; yet every problem is an invitation to grow in the flow of God's Spirit - who uses the problem to point us to what really matters and who challenges us to rely on him as we use our abilities to serve.

In the end, these two (Bezalel and Oholiab) used their abilities to reflect and evoke the beauty of God's redemption and new creation as they exemplify and embellish the worship center in Israel's life.
