What is Your Tassel?
What is Your Tassel?
What is the purpose of the tassel on the garment?
The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the LORD, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes. Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the LORD your God.'” Numbers 15:37-41
So the purpose of the tassel is to remind you of the commands of the Lord. The tassel is a way to remind you of your deliverance. It is the Lord your God who has delivered you out of Egypt. All born-again believers have been brought out of and delivered from the old nature of sin (Egypt) and made new by the blood of Jesus Christ.
Another purpose of the tassel is to remind you not to prostitute yourself by chasing after the lusts of your own heart and eyes. The cravings of your sinful nature, the lust of your eyes and the boasting in your own accomplishments are not from God. This is your sin nature which has been redeemed. You are a dearly loved child of God wearing the Robe of Righteousness given to you by the blood of Christ Jesus. You are living in the Promised Land. Your hope is in the person of Christ Jesus.
Jesus Christ is Lord God Creator of heaven and earth. Remember HIM and do not fall for the prostitution of this world. The cheap, second rate, temporary pleasures are all empty idols. Hope, mercy, grace and peace are only found in Christ Jesus.
What is the tassel you have made for the generations that follow you so that you will remember, “I am the Lord your God”?
