Exodus for Lent: Holy Week, Thursday

Read: Exodus 34:29-35, Exodus 40:16-38, Luke 23:44-48

Reflect: God’s presence is awesome. Moses literally glowed from his closeness to God and covered his face with a veil. The Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle, and later in the Temple, was hidden by a veil, and only high priests were allowed inside. When Jesus died, the veil in the Temple tore, removing the barrier between the people and God. We can all walk right up to the foot of the Cross! How does the lack of a veil between you and God shape your faith and worship? Where and when do you feel God’s awesome presence most in your life? What can you do to cultivate your awareness of His presence?

Write: Here or privately.

Recite: And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” Luke 22:20

Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for loving your covenant people so much that you sent your Son to die for us. Seal in me a desire to worship you joyfully and share the triumphant message of salvation with the world. Amen.
