Summary: How to get forgiveness

  Study Tools

1. Realize God wants fellowship with you and initiates it. “Then the LORD instructed Moses, “Come up here to me” (Ex. 24:1, NLT).

2. We must be willing to be alone. “Come up here to me” (24:1, NLT). “Only Moses is allowed to come near to the LORD” (24:2, NLT).

3. We must seek a private place. “Come up to me on the mountain” (24:12, NLT). “Moses said to the elders, ‘Tarry ye here’” (24:14, KJV).

4. Remember, geographical prayer, there are places God delights to reveal Himself. “The glory of the Lord abode upon Mount Sinai” (24:16).

5. There is an atmospherical presence of God. “The cloud covered the mount” (24:15). The place where we find and experience God’s presence, not physically but inwardly.

6. We must learn initial obedience and live constant obedience. “Moses repeated . . . all the teachings and regulations the LORD had given him” (24:3, NLT). Moses’ descriptive title, “The servant of God” (Rev. 15:3).

7. We must make a conscious choice to seek God and obey Him. “They answered . . . ‘We will do everything the LORD has told us to do’” (24:3, NLT).

8. Fellowship with God is based on blood. Moses “built an altar” (24:4). “Sacrificed young bulls” (24:5). “Moses took . . . the blood” (24:6).

9. Deal with your sins by the burnt offering. Moses “offered burnt offerings” (24:5). “Let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a young bullock . . . unto the LORD” (Lev. 4:3).

How to Get Forgiveness

 Recognize we are sinners, “If we say we have no sin . . . the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).

 See your sin as God sees it. “If we confess our sins” (1 John 1:9; Ps. 51:4).

 Repent. Determine to not go there again.

 Tell God we’re sorry (Ps. 51:1-10).

 Ask for cleansing. “To cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

10. Live in obedient fellowship to receive continual cleansing. “It is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sin” (Heb. 10:4). “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light . . . the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).

11. Worship God with the peace offering. Moses, “Sacrificed peace offering of oxen unto the Lord” (24:5). “It is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD” (Lev. 3:5). A peace offering is for God, not primarily for us.

How To Worship (From Psalm 100)

 Approach God gladly. “Shout with joy” (v. 1)

 “Worship the Lord with gladness” (v. 2). Giving God the worthship due Him.

 Realize where you are. “Come before His presence” (v. 2).

 Be grateful. “With thanksgiving” (v. 4).

 Recognize His unfailing love and continuing faithfulness (v. 5).
