‘That golden calf’ (Exodus 32:1-35)

Rev. Philip Burns begins this series of messages on the people of Israel’s journey through the desert at Exodus 32. The text tells how the people of Israel worshiped the golden calf in the desert. The core problem was not just idolatry but unbelief which led them forget all about the God who saved them and His commands to them. The circumstances caused by the absence of Moses remind us that Jesus our Redeemer is also ‘out of sight’ and the question is whether or not we will live and act in faith or unbelief until the day He returns.
