People Hear God’s Word from Moses          

Exodus 20:18-26 NRSV

When all the people witnessed the thunder and lightning… they were afraid and trembled. . . and said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, or we will die.” (Exodus 20:18-19)

God’s word was important to Moses and the children of Israel, so much so that it had the power to produce fear and trembling.  What does the fear of God look like today?
