The Lord Be With You....Be With The Lord

Exodus 33:12-18

 12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.
 13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
 14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
 15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.
 16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
 17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
 18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

The Lord be With You...Be With the Lord

Moses had a special way of dealing with God.  They talked.  Like, Abraham before him, Moses spoke with God the same way friends and relatives speak with each other now.  It was an actual, special relationship.  Moses understood that God was with him....and Moses, in turn, was with God.

Its interesting how we overlook the opportunity that we have in this 'special' relationship with God.  Unlike, Moses, we have the privilege of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  We actually come to God cleansed by the very blood of Jesus, and are presented to Him, a clean, righteous and holy son of God...not a servant, fully accepted.

Dear friends, God is with you.  He has arranged the path of salvation and redemption by paving it with the very blood of His only begotten son.  Like this passage, He has strongly demonstrated that He is with us.  He has shown his Glory.

We have a special relationship, but like all relationships, it takes some work.  It takes communication.  God is with us.  Now, we are challenged to be with Him.

Will you be with God?  Will you accept the gift of Jesus?  Will you open up to Him, His leadership, His grace, His peace, His will?

At Fellowship, we are all about building relationships.  We would love the opportunity to help and and encourage you in this very special relationship.

Matthew 28:18-20

 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
