DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 2:1-46; Jeremiah 10:1-25; Ephesians 4:1-16

Behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. Exodus 3:2 

What is your name, Moses asked the one who spoke from the bush that burned but was not consumed. “I Am That I Am” (v. 14) was the answer. The self-existent one, never created, without a beginning, never ending, needing nothing, always was, always is and always will be. Our minds collapse when we try to think of it. Just as Moses could not discern how the bush burned but was not consumed, so too, we cannot take it in. God’s nature, like that fire, is a mystery, a marvel that should cause us, like Moses, to worship. —Shane Johnson

Before the hills in order stood, or earth received its frame,
From everlasting You are God, to endless years the same. —Isaac Watts
