Golden Calf or Golden Opportunity?

Exodus 32:1-14

Sermon Synopsis: We are often like the people of Israel as they stood at the foot of Mt. Sinai.  Moses was away on business (an extended meeting with God) when the people decided to make a significant investment.  They had a “golden opportunity” but ended up investing in a “golden calf.”  They committed their glory to “an image of a bull, which eats grass.”  Had Moses not “stood in the breach” before God, the people would have been destroyed.  An even worse fate would be our today had not Jesus stood in the breach for all of us.

      What do you commit your glory to?  It really does make a difference.  It not only makes a difference in the direction of your life.  Your decision makes a difference in where you spend eternity.  What kind of return do you expect on your investment of your life?

Scripture References: Psalm 106:19-23; Exodus 32:1-14; Philippians 4:1-9.
