Holy People are Presence People

Moses in Exodus 33:16 Is it not in your going with us, so that we are distinct, I and your people, from every other people on the face of the earth?”
When you read Exodus it's mostly a book about The Tabernacle yet most people make the ten commandments the big deal...  the jealous God who saved his people out of the hands of the tyranical Pharoah is about imtimate relationship more than he's about passing decrees. We're called to be holy (distinct) people which means we're people with whom God goes. We say "I know whom I've believed" and "the holy Spirit dwells within" me (2 Timothy 1).
