The truth of God as “I Am” includes the idea that God is present active reality. God is known by what He does. He is not merely ambience or atmosphere. The bush burns and we do not go limp or tearful or sentimental in its warmth. We turn aside to investigate an observable event and discover with trembling fear and shock the God who is present active reality working out His purpose even suspending the natural order of things to do so. The action of God is the sign He is truly present. Let’s seek that and not be content with ambience. Churches that believe themselves to be alive are most in danger of settling for the god called ambience. There is understandably a market for a regular feel good moment.

God bless
