Life Is A Rollercoaster.

Exodus 31:1-33:23
The history of Israel is like a rollercoaster ride. It’s full of highs and lows. We read of the Lord, giving His Word to Moses (Exodus 31:18). This is followed by the people rebelling against God (Exodus 32:1). The sin of the people is very great. The mercy of God is even greater. He shows mercy to those whop have rebelled against Him. He continues to speak His Word of grace – “My presence will go with you, and I will give you peace” (Exodus 33:14). Often, we feel like God won’t want to have anything more to do with us. God is the God of grace. He is also the God of glory. He reveals His glory to us (Exodus 33:18-22). His full glory is too much for us. He gives us a glimpse of His glory. He gives us enough to create in us a thirst for more of His glory. He doesn’t give us so much that we are overwhelmed by His glory.  What we have is grace and glory together. When His glory seems too much for us, His grace breaks in and assures us that we belong to Him. He shows us that His glory is the glory of His love, the greatest love of all.
