Numbers 16:48–He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped.
The people had been disobedient and rebellious to God, so God was bringing down His judgment with a plague. Moses told Aaron to go down and stand between the people and God and offer a sacrifice, so he did and the plague stopped. This is an exact picture of what God did for us through Jesus Christ. We were dying because of our sin and unable to reach a living God, so Jesus was sent to stand between the living, God, and the dead, us. Through Jesus’ sacrifice we can be saved.
Father, thank You for standing between us and providing the sacrifice for us. You created a way for us to be saved and to be made part of the living. Thank You for Your provision and Your sacrifice.
