The burning bush experience was a pivotal turning point in Moses’ life. He went from a wilderness shepherd to the leader of Israel. He went from knowing little to nothing about God to having a personal encounter with the Creator of the world. It was definitely a life-changing experience!
So far, we’ve spent the last couple weeks looking at how holy ground is where we stand in the presence of God and where we receive our calling.
