The Gospel is the Glory of God

At our Men’s Study this last week on the life of Moses we studied the chapters around our text and I want to come back to it and look at one aspect of it is more depth this morning. With a sermon title, The Gospel is the Glory of God, you might be wondering what we are doing in the OT. We’re blowing up another myth. Last week’s myth was that the Gospel is just something we share with people who are not Christians. Rather the Gospel is something we need to share with ourselves every day. We need to cultivate the habit of preaching the Gospel to ourselves daily to counter all the other voices in our heads and lies in our culture. Today we will see the Gospel is in the heart of God and on display in all of His dealings with His people. God has lead His people, the nation of Israel, out of Egypt and has brought them through the wilderness to Mt. Sinai. In Exodus 20 we read the Ten Commandments which are like marriage vows, covenant commitments, where God makes His covenant to be their God and they will be His people.
