Exodus 3:10-12 – The Sign of Worship

Exodus 3:10-12
10
Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?
12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

-Did you catch that last part of verse 12?  What was God’s sign that He would be with Moses as he faced the might of Pharaoh; not a bright star, not the splitting of a great sea, but a command- when you make it back out of Egypt with the Hebrew people in tow, you will worship Me right here.  If you have faith to receive such a sign, you’ll find it’s the most powerful kind.  If God is right it means Moses will one day worship Him again in that very mountain; it means that both he and the rest of the Hebrew must make it out of Egypt alive.  Herein lies the greatest misconception that we humans have developed when it comes to worshipping God; it is for Him.  But it is not just for Him, it is for us.  God didn’t plant churches because He needed worshippers, He planted them as reminders that He is still with us and He is still bringing us out of our own personal Egypts.  When Sunday comes, find a church and go inside.  Not because you are doing the Lord a favor, but because He brought you through another week and it’s only fitting to worship Him for it.
