Moses had a close friendship with God because he would talk to Him all the time through prayer.
Because Jesus died on the cross, we can talk to God all the time too!
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
– John 15:15
Moses and the Tent of Meeting
Moses was a very faithful man, who grew up in the palace of the Egyptian Pharaoh. With the help of his brother, God called Moses to deliver his people. God also led Moses and the Israelites through the Red Sea towards the Promised Land. God showed himself as a cloud by day, and fire by night. Moses would talk to God in a placed called “The Tent of Meeting.” Whenever Moses went to inside the Tent of Meeting all of the people would stand in front of their own tents and watch until Moses would get inside. As Moses would go into the tent, the pillar of the cloud would come down and hover at its entrance.
Moses had a close personal relationship with God. Because Jesus died on the cross for us, we can have a close relationship with God too. Prayer is possible all because of our relationship with the Lord. Our relationship with Him grows the more and more we engage in conversation with Him.When Moses would talk to God, he was able to talk to God face-to- face in the Tent of Meeting. In order for us to continue to share a friendship or relationship with our family, friends, and co-workers, we must engage in conversation with them. The same goes for our relationship with God! We have to be intentional about talking to God by praying consistently and sharing our lifewith Him. God wants to have a relationship with us because of His unconditional love for us!
I can be best friends with God.
