And the Lord said to Moses, "Go down for your people, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves, they have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded then, they have made themselves a molten calf, and have worshiped it and sacrifice to it, and said, "these are your gods, O Israel, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. And the Lord said to Moses, "I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people; now therefore let me alone that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them, but of you I will make a great nation. (Exod 2: 7-13).
Time and time again, a few people in the world forget the saving power of God out of ignorance and stubbornness. Sometimes, isolated number of people carve themselves statues of other gods! On the other hand, for an Awesome and Almighty God, these gods are nothing, non-existent for God is unrivalled in all ways.
But in the book of Exodus, we have read about the ire of God! Why? Despite of His care and love and mercy for these hard-headed people, they still cling to other unknown gods. In the same way, at this age and time, some people could still do abominable things like revelry in a public place, witnessing to the strange god whom God could not be compared.
However God gives all chances for these people to come back to Him! That is how awesome our God is! He is full of mercy and forgiveness. Instead of consuming these people who have offended Him greatly, He still offer them His ocean of forgiveness! As long as they profess their faith and loyalty to Him.
Let us pray that God will grant us that unwavering heart that will profess that there is no God other that Him! A God who has an everlasting love, who has compassion for His people and who will bring us to everlasting life.
In Jesus Name,
