This week’s Torah Portion states, יב וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-יְהֹוָה רְאֵה אַתָּה אֹמֵר אֵלַי הַעַל אֶת-הָעָם הַזֶּה וְאַתָּה לֹא הוֹדַעְתַּנִי אֵת אֲשֶׁר-תִּשְׁלַח עִמִּי וְאַתָּה אָמַרְתָּ יְדַעְתִּיךָ בְשֵׁם וְגַם-מָצָאתָ חֵן בְּעֵינָי: יג וְעַתָּה אִם-נָא מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ הוֹדִעֵנִי נָא אֶת-דְּרָכֶךָ וְאֵדָעֲךָ לְמַעַן אֶמְצָא-חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ וּרְאֵה כִּי עַמְּךָ הַגּוֹי הַזֶּה: יד וַיֹּאמַר פָּנַי יֵלֵכוּ וַהֲנִחֹתִי לָךְ: 33:12 Then Moses said to the Lord, ‘See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people!’ But You Yourself have not let me know whom You will send with me. Moreover, You have said, ‘I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’ 33:13 ‘Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people.’ 33:14 And He said, ‘My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.’(NASB) After the tragedy of the sin of the golden calf, Moshe feared that the people would never be able to find favor in God’s eyes again. In the Ohel Moed (Tent of Meeting) Moshe sought for assurance from the Lord that He would go with these people. In the context of the great sin of Israel, Moshe asked, 33:13 ‘Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor (חֵן, grace) in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor (חֵן, grace) in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people.’(NASB) Moshe speaks of finding favor, mercy, and grace in the eyes of the Lord. He speaks of knowing God in order to find grace (favor) in his sight. This knowing God by knowing His ways is the concept of “faithfulness.” The question then is for us, “Is faithfulness required for Eternal Life?” Does this question stand contrary to what we are being taught in the church today?
