God’s love is greater than his anger (Travelling Through God’s Word: Exodus, Part Eight)

Exodus

The Lord said to Moses, “Go down, for your people have corrupted themselves, turning quickly from the way which I commanded them. They have made for themselves a molten calf, have worshipped it and sacrificed to it… .”

God was not pleased with His people. Did he abandon them? No! He did not. He called on them to return to him: Moses stood in the gate of the camp, saying, “Who is on the Lord’s side? Come to me.”

As I was reading these words, my thoughts turned to the prayer of the prophet Habakkuk: “in wrath remember mercy” (Habakkuk 3:2). From there, my thoughts went to the cross of Christ. There, we see the wrath of God, poured on Christ, who takes our sin upon himself, and we see the love of God, calling out to each one of us, “Who is on the Lord’s side? Come to me.”
