go down

Monday September 16th, Exodus 32:  9 "I have seen these people," the LORD said to Moses, "and they are a stiff-necked people. 10 Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation."  11 But Moses sought the favor of the LORD his God. "O LORD," he said, "why should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, 'It was with evil intent that he brought them out, to kill them in the mountains and to wipe them off the face of the earth'? Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people.  Test time Moses, everyone take out your pencil and paper and write a paragraph on what the God of creation, the God of grace, the God who came down to us in the form of Jesus would do in this situation.  It’s test time, and Moses and God will even throw in a bit of a curve to see if fall for it.  Will you be the one to choose anger fear and judgment.  Moses passed, he did not fall for the angry God thing and say, yah, let’s go get them and show them a lesson they will never forget.  Moses did the God thing and said, I will go down.  Now, as the children of God, it is our turn.  Will we fall for the anger and fear curve ball and find some scape goat to blame, or will we “go down” and into the lives of those God has placed before us to love?
