One Year Bible: Feb 4

20140103-051626.jpg

To read today’s portion of scripture, follow this link to Biblegateway.com or find the following in your Bible:

Exodus 19:16-21:21
Matthew 23:13-39
Psalm 28:1-9
Proverbs 7:1-5

“So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was” (Exodus 20:21).

Why did the people stand afar off? Because they didn’t know the grace of God. They knew only the bellow and roar of His wrath; the heat of his fire, burning through a bush; the flash of lightning against a helpless sky. To the rest of them, God’s name was fear. But Moses knew better. Moses, a murderer, had tasted of divine forgiveness. So no darkness was black enough to keep him from venturing forward. Moses knew the kindness of this all-seeing, all-forgiving deity. And he wanted to know Him more.

God, keep me hungry enough for you touch that I’ll venture into the darkness to see you, though all beside me shrink back.
