Psalm 15 exemplifies the conduct of a person who is a true worshipper of God and the story of Phinehas in Numbers 25 is a classic example of a true worshipper of God. We must protect everything that will get God to continue to work amongst us. Don’t get emotional with wrong people in the presence of God; if you do,you are not a worshipper and you will be confronting God.
What should you rather separate from? God or what is attacking God? Which one will you hold onto? Phinehas was a worshipper to the core. There are many Christians that cannot see the power of God because they are involved with everything God said we should separate from. Your worship is seen in your attitude towards strange children and attitudes in Zion. Phinehas took God’s matter personal and you must also take everything that concerns God personal.
I don’t know if everybody in that gathering that day just looked and wondered how this man of Israel could be carrying a woman to the tent to sleep with her while all the people of Israel were weeping to God for the same sin of fornication with strange Moabite women. Not Phinehas! He was not content with wondering. He rose up, followed him and took a javelin in his hand and struck both the man and his partner through.
God gave Phinehas a covenant of peace because he was zealous for Him. A true worshipper is zealous for God and His things. If you see someone speaking against anything that concerns God, don’t keep quiet; ask such a person to keep quiet and shut them up. That is jealousy for God and that’s what a worshipper will do.
PRAYER: Lord, let the zeal of your house and things that matter to you consume me afresh in Jesus’ name. Amen!
