Session 6.41 for October 12, 2014
In the wilderness, the Israelites began the process of truly understanding that they could not control God or contain him in any image. For years, in Egypt, they had seen gods worshipped that were visual and measurable. Now, this God they were following into the wilderness was wild and unpredictable. In their uncertainty, they reached for what was familiar, and tried to make God more predictable. However, a predictable God is not what they got. How do we try to contain and measure God. Why is it easier to reach for a God we can predict than for one we can truly experience.
