We need to get into the Word today, but sometimes it is easy to get confused about what to read. The Bible is so big and filled with soo many important truths. How do we know where to even start? It is better to start somewhere, than to start nowhere.
If we aren’t doing a specific reading plan or want more than our daily study in Thessalonians, this is a great way to accomplish this goal of filling up our spirit with more of the very word of God! I just received the gift of a new phone, and it has the option of showing me one of my reading plans I committed to reading. Admittedly I haven’t spent much time the past few months on my chronological study, but this little tool makes it easier to remember. . . “I need to read Numbers 35-36 today.”. And today, I am getting to that goal.
If you have no idea what to read or need more, join me as we think on the truths of Numbers 35.

In addition to becoming a place for the Levites to live, six of these towns will become cities of refuge. This is where one “who has accidentally killed someone can flee for safety (25:6).”
I love what God says in verses 33 and 34 of this chapter. Let’s listen, shall we?
“‘Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the Lord, dwell among the Israelites.’”
Jesus has now become our atonement! As you may wonder how we can…
