Take Off Your Sandals (Exodus 3:1-6)Brian Boucek, June 10, 2018
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
We need to recognize God's holiness and (metaphorically) take off our sandals when approaching Him. He is the creator, sustainer, and savior of the world. If we forget that, we become lost. We treat God like our servant rather than becoming His servant.
Ancient Israel had proper respect for God. Only one of the priests, once a year, after a lengthy ceremonial cleansing, could visit God's presence. But Jesus changed everything: He makes it possible for us to talk directly to God because he has already cleansed us from our sin.
But we must still "take off our sandals"--God is still holy. Several ways: (1) speak of Him as holy, and nothing else; (2) remember God's holiness when praying or worshipping; (3) remind ourselves who God is.
God is not our co-pilot--he is the holy king of the universe. Keep a reminder handy.
