Life lessons from the desert Moses – A radicle God encounter Exodus 3 With Peter Veysie 26th April 2020 1. A Personal Relationship With God The number 1 thing God wants to do with each one of us is to establish an intimate, personal relationship.

They want him dead, they rather release Barabbas, a murderer,…
