To The Work!

Exodus 35-40  I still remember the awe and trepidation of my first major model change at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington. I was a green electrical foreman of the ripe old age of 21. I remember walking into the plant after the first week. It was gutted. All the steel was in piles […]

In Him Was Life!

by

We, humans, remember great events from history. If you are a Texan you might remember March 2, Texas Declaration of Independence, or March 6, the fall of the Alamo. Sunday, of course, we remember the greatest day in all of history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But why? Of what significance is it to you […]

God’s Presence: A Great Privilege

by

Exodus 33-34 The college I went to, General Motors Institute, had a very rigorous academic program and an intense schedule. Prior to my freshman year, all housing was in fraternity housing (gasp). But my fraternity was not a “normal” fraternity. We studied hard. The upperclassmen helped the underclassmen. There was no hazing. I was especially […]

The Sin Of ???

by

Exodus 32 We have seen the rise of Moses, the defeat of the Egyptians by God, the leading of the people by God and their grumbling, the appearance of God at Sinai. And now we come to the incident of the “Golden Calf”. This Sunday school story has so many levels. Why did Israel sin? […]

God And King, Pt. 2

by

Exodus 28-31 If you were unable to hear Roger’s message last week, I encourage you to take the time to listen to it online at www.burlesonbiblechurch.org. It will help us understand Exodus, though he did not mention the book once! (I know, it is hard to believe.) What was Israel’s role in the world around […]

Rip Van Winkle

Philippians 3:20, 2 Corinthians 5:20   Rip Van Winkle went to sleep for 20 years. In the time he slept, the world changed drastically! He “only” slept through the American Revolution, while sleeping on American soil! How did he cope with such change? Now, imagine you fell asleep in February 2001. You woke up last […]

God And King

by

Exodus 25-27   Verna and I like detective shows or mystery movies. Several things are needed to solve the mystery. Among them: attention to detail, seeing the big picture, understanding cultural differences, all the pieces have to fit, and motive, etc. I am usually not very good at it and they are TV shows anyway. […]

God And His People Are Bound Together

by

Exodus 24   What is worship? Who can worship? What, if anything, is required for worship? Have you ever thought about it? What do you do to prepare for worship? Exodus 24 describes the ratification of the covenant between God and His people at Sinai. What can we learn from it? As New Testament believers […]
