After their exodus from Egypt God’s people found themselves lost in the wilderness, and they didn’t know where their journey would take them. Moses, their leader, had the spiritual GPS—direct access to Yahweh. Moses led them step by step, day by day, toward their destination. But then Moses died, and the Israelites were disillusioned and afraid. When Joshua took over as their leader, God reminded him that God knew exactly where His people were and where He wanted them to go—to the land of promise. All they had to do was trust in the Lord and step out in faith.
The cross is where we gain our spiritual freedom. But we don’t honour the cross…we honour the One who hung on it. Christ is the object of our adoration.
We live in a day marked by shallow concepts of God. We’ve lost our sense of reverence…God has become our “pal,” our understanding buddy. But God is holy. He’s our Creator. He is our sovereign and glorious Lord, worthy of all our praise and worship.
Many fall prey to the temptation of attending church only on those high Christian holidays such as Christmas and, of course, Easter. Sitting in the congregation only once or twice a year, a visitor might wonder just what all the hubbub is about. An hour-long meeting with a little singing and a little preaching is nice but certainly not life-changing! For most people, that’s probably right, because the life of faith brings change, not through occasionally dropping in on God but through regular commitment across weeks and weeks of seemingly little change.
