Moses

by Norman P. Grubb

The union was pictured to him in a perfect way. He saw a common bush aflame. What puzzled him was that the bush didn’t go out. He looked again. Why didn’t it go out? The bush was not consumed. And then the Divine voice came out of the bush, “I am.” In essence God said to him, “Now you can see, Moses; you can see the relationship for which you were created. This relationship is really a fact about you, but you cannot see it, or haven’t been able to see it as yet. You are a common bush. And in the common bush lives the Divine fire.
