>Exodus 33: 11

>When Israel sinned before God, Moses moved the tabernacle to the outside of the camp, and the people came to Moses, spoke to him, face to face, and then returned to the camp; everyone except Joshua! Joshua stayed behind and had an extra blessing of being with Moses as he spoke to God.

We should not be hasty to leave the tabernacle. Maybe, if we stick around, God will give us an extra blessing!

>Exodus 32: 26

>The question is posed, not only to the people of Israel, but also to the child of God, “Who is on the Lord’s side?”

We need to dedicate ourselves to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and spiritually seperate ourselves apart, not only from unbelievers, but also from brothers and sisters in Christ who refuse to live holy before God. This is a problem with many Christians today. They are convinced that they need to live like the world to reach the world. Instead, we need to “gather ourselves unto the LORD” and commit our lives to obey Him, even if we are rejeced by others.

>Exodus 32: 24

>I find it interesting that when Moses confronted Aaron with his sin, Aaron responded with lies. According to Aaron, when he threw the gold into the fire, out popped this calf! But if you read vss 1-4, you can see that Aaron fashioned the calf himself.

We are the same way. It is easy to make excuses for our sin, making it appear to be nt as bad as it really is. Instead, we need to confess our sin, and make no excuses for it.

>Exodus 32:7-14

>God wanted to destroy the people for their idolatry, but Moses interceded in their behalf. This was probably a test for Moses. Think about it: God is omniscient (all knowing) and omnipotent (all powerful). He was not caught off guad by Israel’s actions. God wanted to confront Moses and see what he was made of. As a good leader, he interceded for his people.
