Exodus 3:1-5 The Living Bible
One day as Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, out at the edge of the desert near Horeb, the mountain of God, 2 suddenly the Angel of Jehovah appeared to him as a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw that the bush was on fire and that it didn’t burn up, 3-4 he went over to investigate. Then God called out to him, “Moses! Moses!”
“Who is it?” Moses asked.
5 “Don’t come any closer,” God told him. “Take off your shoes, for you are standing on holy ground.
Moses was called by God at this moment to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Can you imagine experiencing a burning bush during your ho-hum workday? Although this passage of Scripture, known as the “burning bush,” might be questioned by some people, the message is clear. When God reveals himself to us, through Scripture or through a sense of his presence, LISTEN, for he has a purpose in mind for us.
