Exodus 19 and 20


Reading Exodus 19 and 20, I am struck by just how out of touch God is with modern evangelicals.  We have methods for growth.  He has strict limits which prevent folks from approaching Him.  We have sensitivity toward all seekers. He was set apart in thick darkness.  We have open access where everybody hears a word from God.  He left the people saying, “You speak to us [Moses], and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us lest we die” (Exodus 20:19).

Now, I know that everything has changed since Christ has come and dwells among us (Hebrews 1), but I also know that it is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the Living God (Hebrews 10:31).  We might be too casual about God.
