November 12 – Exodus 32:30-34

November 12 – Exodus 32:30-34

30 The next day Moses said to the people, “You have sinned a great sin. And now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.” 31 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Alas, this people has sinned a great sin. They have made for themselves gods of gold. 32 But now, if you will forgive their sin—but if not, please blot me out of your book that you have written.” 33 But the Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book. 34 But now go, lead the people to the place about which I have spoken to you; behold, my angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit, I will visit their sin upon them.”

Here we see Moses acting as a mediator between the Israelites and God. As I look forward to the New Testament, I see Jesus paying the ultimate price for my sin.

He stood in the gap for me and for you.

I know that if I were to meditate on this price that Jesus paid, I would, quite possibly, be more likely to think before I acted. How about you? Do you daily focus on the horrific death Christ suffered so that we could personally know the grace and mercy of God?

Heavenly Father, I thank You for allowing Your Son to stand in the gap and die for my sins so I don’t have to.  Not only did You “allow” Him to die for my sins, that was His soul purpose for being born, living His life, His ministry, and then His horrific death. 

Thank You for loving me enough to make a way for me.

In Jesus’ name.
