A Great Leader

I feared the anger and wrath of the Lord, for he was angry enough with you to destroy you. But again the Lord listened to me. Deuteronomy 9:19

Moses spoke of how he “went to bat” for the Israelites. Their rejection of God by making an golden idol was foolish. They were deserving of anything God would do to them, but Moses pleaded for them. Did He change God’s mind? I don’t think so, but he does help us see how Jesus did. In Jesus’ sacrificial death he bore all the anger and punishment of God – for our actions, our sin. Jesus never pleaded with the Father to be lenient with us; he suffered our punishment and gave us his righteousness. I commend Moses for trying to protect the people. I worship Jesus for saving me.
