You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other. From heaven he made you hear his voice to discipline you. On earth he showed you his great fire, and you heard his words from out of the fire. Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants after them, he brought you out of Egypt by his Presence and his great strength, to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today.
I believe we too are shown “these things so that you would know that the Lord is God and there is no other”. (NLT) As we read the Bible, story after story is revealed to communicate that we serve a faithful God who loves us and keeps His promises. Today is no different, as we live in a world full of slavery to sin. God is working to free people from the bondage of sin, just like He freed Israel from the clutches of Egypt. He sent Christ Jesus – God the Son – and now we, as His church, continue on as ambassadors for Christ! All have been set free from sin, preach the good news!
