“Now Moses was pasturing the flock… and he led the flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed” (Exodus 3:1-2).
When God lights the fire that offers us the awareness of his presence, and the purpose for which we should live, it usually occurs in the routines of everyday life. Sometimes on a mountain; sometimes in a sanctuary but, most often, in the routine of the day. What Jesus did, he did in the streets; among the people; in the midst of human pain and lostness. Just as his life and ministry confirmed the presence and working of God, so does ours.
