Exodus 34:5-7


Then the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.





The text does not record what Moses saw of God’s self-revelation, but it does tell us the words he heard. Moses stressed the mercy of God in this exposition of God’s name, Yahweh. There is nothing more terrible than the way in which sin clings to a man and dogs his footsteps. Let a man once steal, and he is never trusted again, even though he has made reparation for it. Men look at their fallen brothers through their sin; but God looks at man through the idealized life, with a love that imputes to him every virtue for Christ’s sake. Moses’ response to God’s gracious revelation was submission and “worship.


God’s Glory is the greatest revelation of who he is…and the path to this revelation and its outcome are truly transforming and life changing for a believer.


Memory Verse: Deuteronomy 4:24


“I sought to hear the voice of God and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared: “Go down again – I dwell among the people.”
