Get your heart and mind ready for this Sunday’s message by abiding in God’s word- Exodus 32-34! Here we will see the nation of Israel successfully convince their priest Aaron to build them a false god, after they had made a covenant with the Lord back in 24:7 saying:
All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.
This was a devastating blow to their promise, resulting in a plague on the people. However, we see that God never ceases to hold fast to His end of a covenant. Watch how He renews their covenant, paying special attention to Moses and God’s conversation in 33:12-23. Consider these questions:
- How does Moses intercede for the nation of Israel?
- What does Moses’ greatest concern seem to be?
- What promises does God ensure Moses?
- How does Moses’ role as a mediator between God and His people reflect the coming of Jesus Christ?
We are praying that Jesus would bring salvation for those who go through the motions of legalism, misunderstanding the free gift of God’s grace given through Jesus. (Romans 3:21-26 and Ephesians 2:8)
Come Thou Fount
All to Jesus I Surrender
Great Are You Lord
