The word “go” is translated from the Hebrew word halak, which means “walk.” In spite of their sin, God graciously walked with the Israelites, just as Jesus walked with the disciples. We learn four important truths from Moses’ response to grace. First, Moses examined his heart and surrendered it to God; second, he confessed his sin; third, he repented and believed in God’s grace; and finally, he walked with God.
