The Gift is His Presence
Topic: Sunday Gathering Passage: Exodus 33:1–33:17, Hebrews 9:24–9:26, Hebrews 10:19–10:22
If you could either have every material blessing you've ever dreamed of, or God himself, what would you choose? Are more interested in our Father, or in his stuff? What truly is our greatest prize?
In Exodus 33 we see the people of Israel faced with this predicament - granted access to the Promised Land, but sentenced to a life of isolation from the presence of God because of their persistent sin. Then, in this hour of calamity, Moses intervenes and pleads for mercy - 'If your presence does not go with me, do not bring us up from here.'
In the last of our November 'one off' messages, discover how we have a true and better Moses, who intercedes on behalf of his people, and who himself is our way back into the greatest blessing of them all - the presence of God.
