Exodus 32, verse 35, “So the Lord plagued the people because of what they did with the calf which Aaron made.” My brother, my sister, there’s a price to be paid when a society fashions its own God. In this historical account, we see a breakdown of order, brotherhood, and an inability to resist that which will threaten their very survival as a people.
There was only one remedy: a man of God reestablished the right order of worship. And that right order began with prayer. When people saw it, they began to stand again in the doors of their own homes and worship again the one and the true God.
There are many things which we could choose to do to confront the evil that’s so prevalent in our time. But above all of them stands one.
It’s time to pray.
