And the LORD passed before [Moses] and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.” Exodus 34:6-7
This is God’s revelation of Himself.
Who He is.
What He does
The Self-Existent God
Abounding in goodness and truth
Keeping mercy for thousands
Forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin
By no means clearing the guilty
Letting the consequences of their actions and decisions play out.
This is the glory Moses asked to see.
This is the glory that filled the Temple
This is the glory Christ showed us.
This is the glory we can see for ourselves.
Because of what Jesus did.
Because of who God is.
He invites us to know Him.
God’s name is THE name worth proclaiming.
