"Among Our Idols" - Exodus 19-20, 32:1-20 (Exodus: God is Here)

After a few months of wilderness provision and deliverance, God invites His people Israel to meet up on Mt. Sinai to hear His voice and establish covenant. Many people call this event "Israel's Wedding Day." However, instead of intimacy and relationship, Israel ends up backing away in fear and sin. And what was intended to be a glorious experience for God's people, ends with Moses up on the mountain receiving the Law and the people down below making a Golden Calf to worship. This is a story of covenant broken by idolatry that calls for mediation and rescue. And yet again, God steps in to deliver His people- this time from idols that seek to enslave us.
