This morning we will be looking at Exodus 19 as well as 1 Peter 2:4-10
This evenings passage will be Exodus 32
We see a people of God, that is Israel, that have been allowed to “break loose” as a result of the idol worship of the golden calf, which Aaron built, as Moses was on the mountain speaking with God.
We also primarily look at the Radical obedience that was prescribed by God for the “pruning of the unfaithful” by the Levites as a result of the idol worship.
God continues to show His faithfulness to His people and we see Moses, as an image of Christ, standing in the middle for the people. He of course is not able to carry the burden of sin for the people, only Christ is able to carry our sin, but we see an image of Christ to come in the actions of Moses toward God in speaking for the people of Israel.
This morning we read from Exodus 32:15-35 as well as briefly from Judges 11:1-40
We see Israel once again chasing after idols. The image of the golden calf is where we find Israel bowing their knee. They wanted to worship God, but not in the way He requires, they wanted to worship him the way humans do by building and worshipping images or idols, in this case the golden calf.
We see that as long as we are captivated by the pleasures of the world and are not satisfied by God alone then we will never drink deeply from eternal waters. All idols should perish in our lives at the fountain of eternal water that is Christ.
This evening Dr. S. Walter continues looking at Exodus chapter 17. This week through the obedience of Moses and Joshua to the Lords guidance we learn that God uses the prayers of His people as the means by which God moves in our lives and delivers us. The atmosphere in which Israel saw victory took place in the environment of submitting themselves obediently to do what God was directing them in.
This morning Dr. Steve Walter walks us through “A Disciple’s Journey” as we look at Mark 4 and 2 Corinthians 3.
This evening, Dr. Ed Walter shares with us from the book of 1 Corinthians chapter 13. We learn what scriptural love looks like. Gods love for us never ends and our love for others should be patient and kind.
