What God Taught Moses About Worship: Exodus 3:1–6

Exodus 3:1–6 (ESV)

3 Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

Worship is an encounter with God.  When we come before God in corporate worship what should our attitude be?

How did God correct the way Moses was coming before Him?

What made the place where Moses stood holy?

When you come to God in worship do you approach Him casually or with reverence and awe?

Are there things you could do internally that would be like removing your shoes externally?

What are things you and your family can do to help foster reverential worship on Sunday mornings?

Read Matthew 2:1-12…

How did the Magi approach baby Jesus?

How did they show reverence?

What was the purpose of the Magi bringing Jesus gifts?  How valuable were these gifts?  Do you give Jesus your very best when you worship Him?
