God and I: The Real Man Upstairs behind the Scriptures

Do you ever feel like God is not as real to you like he was to John, Esther or Moses?
In Exodus 3 the story of the burning bush, Moses gets introduced to God by a brand new Name: I AM. 
Now, I AM can mean several things but I will focus on one today: God is all that there is to see and hear and know. 
Exodus 3:1-6 NIV
[1] Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. [2] There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. [3] So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight---why the bush does not burn up.” [4] When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.” [5] “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” [6] Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

God is REAL and does show up in places we don't expect. Maybe not in the same way in scripture, but he does show up! 

God shows up when we have community together: http://shorelinechurch.org/sermon-videos/?enmse=1&enmse_sid=73&enmse_mid=321
Jesus valued community in the synagoue and beyond his boarders. 
Jesus is here and longs to be with us intimately at all times. More importantly, he desires to have us all to himself because he is madly in love with us his bride. Hope that encouraged you to speak up for Jesus!

Blessings!
