echoing consequences: “Because of I AM, I am…”

The Word for today:
Exodus 4:18-6:9

mark this: Exodus 3:2-3
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.”

and this: Exodus 3:13-14
Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”

One of the most important passages in the Bible is found in Exodus 3, when God appears to Moses in a burning bush and reveals his covenant name: “I AM.” So Stand in the Rain presents two articles today–the first to be read and studied, the second to be appreciated and ever-increasingly absorbed.

1.  The fundamental teaching concerning this passage will be found by clicking here.  (If you are not aware of the significance of the bush and “The Name,” then it is MANDATORY for you to click that link!)

2.  And here are just a few of the echoing consequences of “The Name” in our very own lives. While the list can be read in a minute, the echoes take a lifetime to absorb.

About Stand in the Rain Blogger

Trying to be who God made me, I am wary of my influences. I avoid the culture that surrounds me, for the most part. I soaked up that crap for 40 years. I am trying to replace the word of the world with the unvarnished Word of God.** I like people, but I like solitude just as much. Go figure.** I adore Jesus Christ. I am flipped-out, flamingly and fervently in love with Him. I count it a privilege to draw breath in His universe. All my springs are in Him.** I am crazy about my wife, Shelley. She outshines the sun. I can't help it if I'm lucky.** My heroes are my kids--Caitlin, Gwenlyn, Frankie, & Eddy. I aspire to be like them when I grow up.
