The Presence of God

By: Grace

Here's a summary of the sermon

The sermon focuses on the Presence of God and how to obtain it through faith, righteousness, seeking God's will, and placing God's kingdom first.

Grace Miringa preached on the topic of the presence of God, based on Exodus 33:1-23. She explained that the presence of God is not a feeling or an experience, but God Himself in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. She asked how we can obtain the presence of God, and answered that we need to be born again by faith in Jesus Christ and to continue walking in righteousness after salvation. She also said that we need to know God's will and seek His kingdom first, as Moses did. She warned that having blessings from God does not mean we have His presence, and that we should not be stubborn and unfaithful like the Israelites. She encouraged us to speak the word of God to God, as Moses prayed for God's favor and glory.
