Numbers 6:22-27

June 4th, 2023

Intro - Most of you realized as we read our text that those are the words we close our service with each Sunday. I raise my hand because that's what Jesus did (Luke 24:50) and we repeat the words God told us to say. What does it all mean? We are calling on God to do something for you.

I. Bless you. Carries the thought of being fond of you.

            A. When we bless God it means we worship, respect and honor Him. Ps.103:1-2

III. Shine upon you.  To enlighten you.  Luke 1:79

            A. To understand salvation. Ps.80:3

            B. For spiritual guidance.  Ps.119:105
