Began Ezekiel in my daily reading today. Somebody read chapter 1 today. Somebody who could use a reminder of the immensity, greatness, glory and mystery of our God. Somebody who needs reminding that all we see with our human eyes fades like watercolors in an ocean tide
next to the brightness and brilliance of His holy presence just beyond the veil. Somebody who needs reminding that, in every vision of God’s throne in Scripture, never once is it unoccupied. The creatures that surround His throne are, themselves, of such immensity that the sound
of their wings is “like the roar of a huge torrent.” If you’ll permit me to, I’ll simply read the rest of it to you.

“So Moses finished the work.” (Exodus 40:33) I came to the end of my reading in Exodus this morning. To fully appreciate those 5 words, you really need to read the 39 preceding chapters. The whole thing had been such an ordeal, drama from the time God called out to Moses from
the burning bush to the moment he “inspected all the work they had accomplished” in the building of the tabernacle. For starters, Moses wasn’t looking to lead anything but sheep to pasture. He was hiding when God found him. Moses was no volunteer. And even after God called him,
he insisted God find someone else. But the force of the divine call is hard to resist. The people he served nearly drove him nuts. He was supposed to lead a group of worshippers and what he mostly got was whiners. He’d lost his temper over & over. Even thrown the stone tablets

Happy Sunday, y’all. I’m closing in on the last few chapters of Exodus in my morning Bible readings. Ch 37 today. 1st of all, I’d like to say that Bezalel doesn’t get enough press. As artists go, he’s the GOAT. We’re told in Exodus that God filled him with His Spirit not only to
create the designs for the tabernacle in exact accordance to the pattern Moses was given on the mountain but also to teach others. (35:30-35) I love that. The 1st thing we learn in the Bible about God is that He is creative. Rest assured, artist, He can fill you with his Spirit
to create works far exceeding your natural talent. But back to Exodus 37. “He made a mercy seat of pure gold, 45 inches long and 27 inches wide. He made 2 cherubim of gold; he made them of hammered work at the two ends of the mercy seat, one cherub at one end and one cherub at

As long as what’s Right or Left is more important to professing Christians than what is right or wrong in light of Jesus, we are doomed to present a caricature of him to the world. Christ is neither left nor right nor is He centrist. God seated him “far above all rule & authority
& power & dominion & above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” (Eph 1:21-23)
No matter who it is, the president of the United States is not the head of the church in America. He wasn’t the last 4 years. He won’t be the next 4 years. And he won’t be in 2024. Until we get this straight, we are in grievous sin & in desperate need of repentance in the church.

You have the right to change your mind. Don’t let anybody make you think you don’t. It is a God-given right & the essence of repentance. You have the right to reconsider, to study the fruit of any tree, search your own soul & take an honest look at how you’ve been indoctrinated.
The story is too long for a Twitter thread and, truly, Twitter is not worthy of our deepest, most personal stories. But in hopes that someone might find encouragement, I’ll say this much. 4 1/2 years ago some events shocked me so jarringly that I was forced to stare a number of
very troubling realities in the face. Then I started digging at the roots. They weren’t pretty & neither was I. I don’t know where I belong anymore except I belong with Jesus. I belong in His Word. I belong in a local church. But I no longer belong to a system. I changed my mind.

Exodus 33 today. A chapter virtually unrivaled in the OT. God tells Moses He’ll keep His word. He’ll send them forth to the land flowing with milk & honey. He’ll place an angel ahead of them to drive out their enemies. He’ll do every single thing He promised. But He’s not going.
More theology - more insight, wisdom, direction & understanding of God - is packed into the response of Moses than we could teach, tell or preach on our own in a lifetime: “If Your presence does not go, do not make us go.” No amount of success can make up for God’s absence.
No goal fulfilled can assuage the hollow soul of a human who once savored the divine presence. Nothing is worth it. At the end of Deuteronomy, we find these words: “No prophet has arisen again in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face-to-face. He was unparalleled...” (CSB)

My reading today was Exodus 32. Moses has been on the mountain with God, hearing the instructions for the tabernacle & receiving the stone tablets. The people below, who’d seen the smoke above & heard the thunder &, that very morning, filled their bellies with bread from heaven,
decided Moses & that God above were taking too long. They needed a god below who would get with it. Get with them. Get them where they wanted to go. So they gathered around Aaron & said, “Come, make gods for us!” The same Aaron of Ex 24 who’d been invited by God to see the very
pavement beneath God’s feet. Aaron & his sons & the 70 elders, “saw Him and they ate and drank.” That Aaron. So he tells them in Ex 32, Bring me your gold & let’s see what I can do. He fashions it into the image of a calf & they present it to Israel in wording shudderingly
