The apostle Paul says that God’s power is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9). Some might need to move across the world to be brought to a glorious place of weakness, but most probably just need to walk next door.
In Exodus 19, the Israelites arrive at Mount Sinai. Using Moses as His mediator, God reminds His people who they are, renews His covenant with them and redefines how they should live as His people.
As followers of Christ, we can advance toward reconciliation by recognizing the past, owning our mistakes and loving others well.
