Mistaken Identity

Exodus 32:1-6

 

Synopsis: God told Moses, “I AM WHO I AM” now go tell the people (Exodus 3:14-17).  Later the people responded, “You are who WE SAY you are” (Exodus 32:1-6).  That attitude always leads to a Mistaken Identity.  The god who is the product or invention of people winds up being nothing other than “Dead Weight” (1 Corinthians 8:4-6).  I AM gives life to believers (John 3:3-8).  It doesn’t work the other way around.

      It is easy to be distracted by human desires and human intervention.  Israel asked for a king (1 Samuel 12:20-22) so they could exalt one person to the place of God.  The people got a king and all of the weights that go along with having one. 

      The bottom line for interaction with I AM is humility (James 4:7-10).  God exalts believers.

 

Scripture Text (NLT):  Exodus 3:14-17; 32:1-6; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; John 3:3-8; 1 Samuel 12:20-22; James 4:7-10
