VOICE FROM THE MOUNTAIN

        “The Lord called to him [Moses] out of the mountain…”
          (Exodus 19:3a)
 
Led by God in the cloud the people journeyed through the desert. They came to Mount Sinai where they camped (Exodus 19:1-2).
 
It is here where Moses met with God on the mountain, and God spoke to him there (vs.3). God reminded Moses that He had brought His people ““on eagle’s wings to [Himself]”” (vs.4). And here God offered a promise that Moses was to share with the people—
 
        ““Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and
           keep my covenant,  you shall be my treasured
           possession among all peoples,  for all the earth is
           mine; and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests
           and an holy nation.”” (vss.5-6a)
 
Moses returned to the people and shared God’s words of assurance. And the people responded—““All the Lord has spoken we will do”” (vs.8a). And Moses shared their words of promise with God (vs.8b).
 
PERSONAL APPLICATION: All God asks of us is our love and     obedience.
