Drawn close to God. Day 11 Advent.

Scripture: 

The LORD said to Moses, ‘I am going to come to you in a dense cloud, so that the people will hear me speaking with you and will always put their trust in you.’ Exodus 19:9

Name of Jesus: Word of God (Revelation 19:13)
Symbol: Tablets of Stone with Ten Commandments on

Devotional:

Because of Jesus, the living Word of God, we are not like the Israelites who fear the Word of God or from whom He is hidden by a cloud.  We are brought near to God because of Him.  Nothing separates us from God because of Jesus!

As is written in Hebrews:

18You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” 21The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”

22But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12

My prayer everyday must be that I be one of His sheep who 'hear his voice' and follow Him. How blessed we are!  And what a day that shall be - to see those 'thousands of angels in joyful assembly'!  Just like those angels that sang of Jesus' first coming!

Oh, come Lord Jesus!

Happy Advent!
