The Glory of God, Part 1

We often praise God for and speak about His incomparable glory. But do you really know what His glory is? Could you define it? Understanding God’s glory is key to understanding His character. Scripture shows that His glory is not an abstract concept—it’s His substance, His physical presence. Chris kicks off a 3-week series on God’s glory beginning in the book of Exodus when the glory of God physically appeared before Moses and dwelled with the Israelites.

The Israelites, imperfect and unholy humans, needed a way to exist in the presence of our perfect, holy God. When the Israelites disobeyed God’s instructions, as Nadab and Abihu did by offering unauthorized fire before God, they suffered. But God appointed Levites to protect the Israelites and instruct them how to come before the Lord. In His great love and mercy for the Israelites, God made a way to dwell in His glory with sinful humanity in this way!

Apples of Gold: Fear the Lord

One day Zvi found a stranger sitting at his table in his home. The man said he was a good friend of an Orthodox Jewish man Zvi had become friends with in North America. He went to Zvi on behalf of his friend, asking to collect what Zvi had promised to give him. The man was expecting something tangible to bring back to his friend, but Zvi gave him something else entirely. Hear how Zvi offered the man the greatest gift of all!
