And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone. And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the Name of the LORD. And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD GOD, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. (Exo 34:4-8)
Moses cuts two more tablets to replace the broken Commandments, that Moses threw down when Israel committed idolatry at the golden calf. GOD wrote the Commandments on these new stones as Moses comes up on the mountain and meets GOD. Being in the awesome and Holy presence of the Lord GOD, all Moses can do is worship the Lord, who is both a righteous judge and a merciful saviour.
GOD is Truth, who forgives us our sIn, because of our faith in the finished and perfect work of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary. GOD is also just, and knowing that the effects of some sins extend beyond the sinner, He is right to punish the guilty. We have all sinned and come short of the Glory of GOD, and we are all guilty before the Judge of the quick and the dead. His justice is perfect, and His mercy endureth to all generations.
GOD's people, with His Law and Commandments written on our hearts, now take His message of Hope and Peace to this lost and dying world. We are to leave our comfortable pews and go and tell, and as we go, we are to make disciples. Not just converts, but committed and disciplined followers of the Master who also go out and make disciples, and GOD's Church will grow to the Glory of GOD.
He has called us to minister to the hurting and in need that they might see Jesus in us. He has commanded us to disciple one another in love and in His Word that we might grow thereby. He has commissioned us to take the Good News to this lost and dying world that they may hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and believe, and in believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD is Holy and must punish sIn, but in His mercy GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
