Exodus 32

Today we are reading Exodus 32. In this chapter we read about the Golden Calf incident. “And the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, for your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves. They have turned aside quickly out of the way that I commanded them. They have made for themselves a golden calf and have worshiped it and sacrificed to it and said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!’” And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people. Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them, in order that I may make a great nation of you.”” Exodus‬ ‭32‬:‭7‬-‭10‬ ‭ESV‬‬ As we read this account, it seems so ridiculous that God’s people would behave so foolishly. We are no different. Among the people there are at least three groups: 1) first, there is the group that led the rebellion, 2) second, there is the group that saw the immorality and joined in, and 3) Finally, there is the group that remained faithful. We live in a world which has corrupted itself. Which of the three groups are you in? May you always remain faithful! Pastor Tim
