“In Your Face”
Today is Super Bowl Sunday.
Sometimes you hear the players or announcers talking about being in someone’s face.
What they mean is getting real close to another person and trash talking.
Sometimes they say some horrible words to each other.
I invite you to read the following verses
1 When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”
2 Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons, and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.”
3 So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron.
4 He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, “These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”
5 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the Lord.”
6 So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings. Afterward, they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.
Did you see where Israel was in the face of the Lord God, trash talking?
There, in verse 4 and said by Aaron (brother of Moses) of all people.
All the miracles that the Lord God had done (crossing the Red Sead etc) Aaron credits to the Golden calf,
But remember, we do the same when we practice in life things that the Lord God calls sin.
Keep reading for some more verses and chapters and see what happens to those who get in the face of the Lord God.
If this thought hasn’t convicted, perhaps the Word of God will.
