Can you identify with the psalmist, who in his distress cried “If You, LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared” (Psalm 130:3-4). Do you know the greatness of your need for God’s gracious presence? And how can you express your gratitude for the revelation of His glorious presence both in this life and in the one to come? The main points for the sermon (below) based on Exodus 33 are as follows:
- Sin (idolatry) leads to separation
- Yet God is merciful and patient (grace)
- Do you desire to see the face of God?
