Re: Verse reading–Exodus 24 (day four) God is initiating a covenant with Israel. It is a covenant based on all of the words of the Law that He delivered to Moses. Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and seventy elders of Israel saw the God of Israel. What an awesome sight! Yet, He did not stretch out His hand against them. When Isaiah received his commission (Isaiah 6), he too saw the Lord. He was afraid for his life. It pleased God to give these leaders a glimpse of His glory to inspire them to lead. What will it take for us to lead? We have the written Word of God…thousands of years of His working to redeem mankind. We have the Gospel message…Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave…paying the full price for our sin. When we obey the Gospel, we have the Holy Spirit, living within us to give us understanding and power. We may not have seen the Lord physically, but we have seen His hand at work. Are we going to lead?
