“This is the one who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our fathers. He received living oracles to give to us.”
Stephen is still reminding these Jewish leaders that God’s Presence has never been confined to a specific place, or building, but that God led His people through the wilderness and spoke on Mount Sinai. Moses received the “living oracles” or what we call the Ten Commandments outside the land of Jerusalem.

God is not contained in a certain place, or box or building, but lives in and through His people. When God’s people are here, God is Present. God lives in us to shape us, and through us to reach others. We live by His Spirit with the Living Word at our feet, which is sharper than a two edged sword, and cuts between soul and Spirit and discerns the intentions of our heart. Father God, You alone are the True Living God, and have given us all we need for life and Godliness. Guide my heart, soul, mind and strength today by Your Living Word and Holy Spirit. Live in and through me today, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
ACTION: Let our living God live through me
