Today, we looked from Joseph to Moses. After 400 years of slavery in Egypt, God's people were able to leave, and through one miracle after another, God brought them to Mount Horeb, where He gave His people the 10 Commandments.
These 10 commands were God's way of showing how we could love Him and love others. In fact, as Jesus said, all of the commandments are summed up in those two things.
So often we forget how good boundaries are for us... we don't like to be told what to do... we don't like to feel confined...
We forget that God created these commandments "so that it might go well with them and their children forever." (Deuteronomy 5)
The 10 Commandments are God's way of showing us how much He loves us and desires to protect us. These laws are truly a gift, if we would just learn to see them that way.
Take a look at them in Deuteronomy 5... and as you read, ask yourself how they reveal God's love to you... you will be surprised at how much they express love when you stop to think about it!
And... the only way that Jesus was able to be a perfect sacrifice was for Him to live a sinless life. What that sinless life represented was a HUGE offering of LOVE for us! Praise God that He sent us His Son, Jesus!!!
