Our text is taken today from Exodus 32:26. Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
After being gone for 30 days Moses had come down from the mountain where the Lord gave him the 10 commandments. When he got back down to the people he realized that when the cat’s away, the mice are at play. They were living like the devil and having what the world calls a good time. Moses became angry over the fact that just 2 or 3 months earlier God had given them great deliverance from Egypt and crossed the Red Sea. Now, how soon they have forgotton. So now Moses gives them a decision to make. Will they follow the Lord or the world, the flesh, and the devil. So he asked them the question? Who is on the Lord’s side?
Good question. As a matter of fact it bears looking at from our standpoint.
So I ask you friend. Who is on the Lord’s side? You say, “I am.” Really? Are you going to be at church Sunday? Will you take time to pray and read your Bible? Will you serve God with your talents and abilities that you have? Are you willing to give of yourself, time, money, willfully to the cause of Christ? Does he come first even before your family, friends, and neighbors.
Who is on the Lord’s side? Are you?
