Near or Far… It’s Your Choice, part 2

God issued an invitation to the children of Israel to come to Mount Sinai to receive the covenant.  The people consecrated themselves and on the morning of the 3rd day, Moses brought them out of the camp to the foot of the mountain.  The Presence of the Lord descended on the mountain in an extreme powerful display.  The people feared greatly and allowed their fear to rule in their decision making.  Exodus 20:21 draws a line in the sand for us.  It states, “The people stood far off, while Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.”  We all are being called into a deeper encounter with Him.  He desires to be a Father to us who is intimately involved in every detail of our lives.  We must examine ourselves and ask the question in honesty, “Is our heart drawing near or standing far off from His Presence?”
