Moses struggled. God said My Presence will go with you NIV, but Moses immediately asked, If your Presence does not go with us…. NIV You talk only to me. No one can see you. We cannot make an image of you. How will anyone believe you are real?
But Moses also said, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. NIV
Jesus reminded the authorities of the truth of Moses’ words with, pay to God what belongs to God. GNT Little things like the government are only a nuisance to the people of God. Too many Christians pledge allegiance to the United States with greater fervor than when they pledge allegiance to God.
God did teach Moses and he went even farther and allowed Moses to see just a bit of God. Even that small exposure caused Moses to give a visible glow. Learning the ways of God changes us. As Paul wrote, when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said was true. NLT
Be righteous and do good.
