Read Exodus 24:12-18
12 The Lord said to Moses, “Come up the mountain to me, and while you are here, I will give you two stone tablets which contain all the laws that I have written for the instruction of the people.” 13Moses and his helper Joshua got ready, and Moses begany to go up the holy mountain. 14Moses said to the leaders, “Wait here in the camp for us until we come back. Aaron and Hur are here with you; and so whoever has a dispute to settle can go to them.”
15 Moses went up Mount Sinai, and a cloud covered it. 16–17The dazzling light of the Lord’s presence came down on the mountain. To the Israelites the light looked like a fire burning on top of the mountain. The cloud covered the mountain for six days, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from the cloud. 18Moses went on up the mountain into the cloud. There he stayed for 40 days and nights.
God called Moses and Joshua to climb the mountain to be with him. Scripture says that the Glory of the Lord's presence dwelt on the mountain for 6 days. We struggle to worship for an hour - Joshua and Moses worship for 6 days; and then the Lord invites Moses up and into the cloud.
Lord I sometimes take the work of growing close to you for granted. My worship lacks passion, my giving is often selfish, my praying is too self centered. Teach me to worship you in Spirit and in Truth.
