Don’t you love it when a certain truth hits you from a variety of angles? There’s the picture in Deut. 5 of God coming to His people in such a dramatic way so that the people could see, hear, feel and experience His glory and greatness. Then in church we hear about the God who is “wildly different, wildly pure, and wildly forgiving” – like no other. Oh, that I would always have a heart to fear, to feel that awestruck wonder before my God and to obey all His commands. Deut. 5: 29
God showed the Israelites His glory and His greatness. They heard His voice in the fire; and rightly so, they were in awe that God speaks with man, yet he lives. What an amazing God!
