Sinai: from desolation to wonder

Sinai: from desolation to wonder

Places like Sinai symbolize the most disadvantaged levels of society, such as the poorest people living on the edge of misery. Paradoxically, while on the one hand, the outcasts of society are considered abandoned deserts; on the other hand, they are like God’s flower gardens, for the Lord did not come for the healthy but the sick.

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. 1 Corinthians 1.27-29

Sinai represents the excluded, abandoned, wronged, ignored people. This is exactly why God chose this mountain! Not just as a mark in the story of a nation that was once enslaved. But above all, to serve as a reference to everyone that there is A Living God who cares about the humble and despised!

The main characteristic of the desert is abandonment. And the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel is interested in the abandoned, the despised, the wronged, this is, all those whose lives seem to no longer have meaning.

The campaign of Sinai is for those who are willing to do anything for an answer. The desolate, the afflicted, the desperate, the helpless, the ruined, the lost, the downcast, the wronged, the shirtless, the excluded, and all those who consider themselves hopeless.

Mount Sinai is the Mount of Salvation, the answer of God, the fulfillment of His promises… Mount Sinai is not for adventure seekers, or to try to improve your life. It is for those who, despite not having anything, are willing to do anything for everything.
