Golden Calf
Exodus 32:7-8

“7 And the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, for your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves. 8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way that I commanded them. They have made for themselves a golden calf and have worshiped it and sacrificed to it and said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!"
God's Wrath on Deserving People
Exodus 32:9-10

“9 And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people. 10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them, in order that I may make a great nation of you.” 
Moses Petitions God and
God's Answer
Exodus 33:2-3

“2 I will send an angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. 3 Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; but I will not go up among you, lest I consume you on the way, for you are a stiff-necked people.” 
Moses Needs Comfort and Confidence in God's Mercy
Exodus 33:13

“Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may know you in order to find favor in your sight. Consider too that this nation is your people.”

Exodus 33:18

“Moses said, “Please show me your glory."
Show me your ways
Show me your glory
God's Gracious Response
Exodus 33:19

“And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.”
God is showing His 'Goodness'
God is showing His 'Name'
God is showing His 'Works'
God is not unjust because His determinative choice of whom He saves is central to His nature.
Exodus 20:5-6

“5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”
Why would God then show mercy and kindness to Israel since they are not loving or obeying Him?
Idem per Idem
“I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy.”

Exodus 34:6-7

“6 The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, 7 keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.”
Not of Will or Exertion
Romans 9:11

"though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad—in order that God’s purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of him who calls"
You will Increase in your love for God

“But if anyone loves God, he is known by God.”
You will be Dissatisfied with your Sin

“But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?).”
You will long to Know Him more
1 Corinthians 13:12

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”
John 1:18

“No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.”
