Exodus 3:1-9 (ESV) – Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the
priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb,
the mountain of God. 2 And the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire out
of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not
consumed. 3 And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not
burned.” 4 When the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the
bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” 5 Then he said, “Do not come near; take
your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” 6 And
he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God
of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God. 7 Then the LORD
said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their
cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings, 8 and I have come down to
deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a
good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites,

God from everlasting to everlasting. Blessed be your glorious name, which is exalted
above all blessing and praise. 6 “You are the LORD, you alone. You have made heaven,
the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all
that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you.”
Acts 17:24-28 (ESV) – The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of
heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, 25 nor is he served by human
hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and
breath and everything. 26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on
all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their
dwelling place, 27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and
find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, 28 for “‘In him we live and move
