This Kind of Grace – SK Service Preview for 05/16/10

Following Moses’ leading of the people of God out of slavery in Egypt, they find themselves waiting at the bottom of Mount Sinai for 40 days and 40 nights while Moses is communicating with God.  In their impatience,  they offer a golden calf as a sacrifice which ultimately leads to God’s judgment on them for their sin.

Yet afterwards, God makes this promise:

Exodus 34:10 And he said, “Behold, I am making a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been created in all the earth or in any nation. And all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord, for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.

The amazing thing in this short narrative is that God gathers a people to Himself, and in the shortest amount of time, they turn to their own wisdom and their own sense of what worship is.  They commit the most heinous acts of idolatry and yet God is faithful to forgive them and even use them for future ministry.  God covenants with them and promises to do marvels among them.

This is the kind of grace we are going to celebrate this week at Sovereign King Church.  If you would like to join us, we meet for worship at 10:30am.  You can find directions to our space here.
