“Go thou near…”
We are commanded to draw close to God. Not some stone image or a paintng are we to draw close to, but the Mighty and Terrible God of all creation! To the people of Israel, God looked like a great consumng fire on top of the mountain. Moes wrote that the LORD’s voice was like the sound of mighty thunderings. No wonder the people were afraid! God is a Holy, Righteous, and All-Powerful God, but we are commanded to draw close to Him!
