On each Sunday of Lent the first reading relates a story from the Old Testament that is important in our salvation history. Today we hear about Moses standing before the burning bush that is not consumed. When Moses asks for God’s name, “I AM who am” is God’s response (in our translation). This name is more literally translated “I AM the One who causes to be what comes into existence.”
The interchange between God and Moses demonstrates the mysteriousness of God. We never completely figure God out. We simply stand in awe of God’s presence.
In what ways have you been faced with the incomprehensibility of God? What has been your response?
