Often in life, we find ourselves like Moses did, staring at a burning bush. We observe the power of God doing something incredible, but rather than focusing on the fact that God is making the miracle happen, we get distracted by the bush or the sign of God’s power itself. We stare at the bush in amazement of the power that the bush has and rather than worship God who is causing the bush to not be consumed, we begin to idolize the bush and worship the creation rather than the creator. We chase after more of the bush rather than chasing after more of Jesus. The danger? If we only fix our eyes on signs of God at work, they aren’t ever fixed on Jesus.
We may think we know God because we know His work, but our hearts are actually far from Him because we don’t know His Son. If we do know Jesus, we may mistakenly think that we are only close to Him if a bush is burning. Its not the bush that will save us. Its not the bush that we need present in our lives. In the end, all we need is Jesus. What are your eyes fixed on???
There is no discussion this week.
