IN EXODUS 33:18, MOSES ASKED GOD TO “NOW SHOW ME YOUR GLORY,” TO MOSES AND THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
In the early chapters of Exodus, God had been showing His mighty power over and over (releasing the people from bondage, parting the Red Sea, the cloud and fire, manna and quail, and much more. Then, in Exodus 33:12-18, Moses said that God’s presence must continue to go with them. And, Moses asked God to now show (demonstrate, manifest) His glory (all that He is) as He led the people to the Promised Land.
A couple other Old Testament passages which show God’s glory: 1 Chronicles 16:8-12 and 1 Chronicles 29:11.
WE need the same glory of God to be “shown” in OUR lives that Moses and the people of Israel did. We see God’s glory now in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—through His Spirit. So, the rest of this message will focus on Christ’s great glory!
