God Counts His Servants (Numbers 3-4,8)

(For accuracy of this transcript, kindly refer to video or audio file)

Good morning brothers and sisters, ICMK Church family, we continue to pray for being able to gather physically in the same place with each other. Get a couple of glimpses of hope today, I don’t know if you noticed the background, Mung San and Wei Ee, were singing, but that was in the sanctuary where the music was recorded and Sister Juea was there on the piano with them. We thank the three of you for serving us. And we long for the day soon, we pray, we’ll be back in the sanctuary together. I’m also glad, to not be alone this morning, JP here with me in the office. He warned me not to tell any jokes, or he might laugh too loud and you’ll hear him, so good to have a brother with me in the office. Take your bibles, please, we’re going to be in Numbers, chapter three. Numbers is the fourth book of the Bible. So, if you’re just opening the front page, go through Genesis, Exodus and Leviticus. We come to numbers, we’re going to start in chapter three this morning. Have you ever received a package in the mail and on the box, there was this label, “Handle With Care.” Can you remember how you open that box, especially if you weren’t sure what its contents were? You open it carefully, didn’t you? How about if I were to tell you that the box you received with the sign, handle with care, contained ancient, valuable, rare artifacts? You handle that box with caution, maybe even reverence. What if, I want to tell you that this box marked, handle with care, contains a chemical that could be used at either to completely cure the Corona virus, or, if you handle them improperly, would kill you. You handle that seriously, wouldn’t you? Well, if this is the case, how much more are we as humans to be intentional and reverence in the way we approach God?
