Re: Verse reading–Exodus 24 (day seven)
“Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu and the seventy elders of Israel.”–v 1.
The Bible speaks of “the upward call of God in Jesus Christ”. Believers are told, in Colossians, “the keep seeking the things above, where Christ is”. So, what does it mean when God invites us to “come up”? It means the great mistake in life is to never let it be great. We stay stuck, either by distraction or anxiety, in insignificant things that will not matter in 2 months, much less 20 years. It means being too busy to pray, too absorbed with self to reflect on God, too lazy to study and let Holy words call us higher. Eventually, all of us either attempt to pull God into our affairs, or we hear God’s call to “come up” and get involved in His affairs. It is grace that invites us. It is faith that answers His command.
