Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Then the Lord said: “I have pardoned, according to your word…” – Num 14:20
God pardoned His people because Moses intervened. If Moses had not asked God to pardon their iniquity, the people of Israel would have been demolished! We see a similar story in Genesis 18, as Abraham intercedes for Sodom. If Abraham hadn’t spoken up, God would have destroyed that wicked city; but because Abraham spoke with God (Gen 18:29), He exercised mercy.
You have a Mediator in Heaven. Just as Sodom was saved because Abraham spoke up for them – and just as Israel was saved because Moses spoke up for them – you are saved because Jesus spoke up for you!
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus… – 1 Tim 2:5
Without a mediator, we do not have access to God’s mercy; but with a Mediator who has taken on the judgment we deserve, all that is left for us is His glory! Aren’t you glad you have a Mediator in Heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father in heavenly places, who intercedes for you at all times?
Father, thank You for Jesus Christ. Thank You Jesus is never to busy to pray for me, and to intercede for me! Thank You for giving me a Mediator who loves me unconditionally.
