Num 2:18 “On the west side will be the standard of the camp of Ephraim by their companies, the general from the sons of Ephraim being Elishama the son of Ammihud,
Num 2:19 his company as mustered being 40,500.
my relative is glorious
General Elishama’s father’s name is Ammihud, which means “my relative is glorious.” This reflects a belief in the community that goes beyond a mere self-confidence. It reflects the same thing Paul saw in the Colossian church “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27). If we are going to be used by God as part of his church, we cannot stop believing in Christ’s glory reflected in it.
LORD, build in us a Christ-within-the church confidence.
