God Set His People Apart

By dlmorris

My cousin recently told his mom now that he had his own children he realizes all the things he probably missed out on when he was a child because he would not trust and obey the adults around him. I often wonder how much I have missed out on because I did not trust and obey the Lord.

God gives us a perfect example in the Bible of the goodness or blessings in keeping His Law and the consequences of not following His law in the children of Israel. God had just rescued them and asked them to marry Him, and they cheated on Him during the wedding ceremony. If you don’t believe me, just check out the “Did You Know?” section of Set G: God Set His People Apart @ The Bible from A to Z.

You’ll find other interesting facts on the same page such how the Feasts and the Tabernacle pointed to Jesus and His work. He is the Firstfruits, the Light of the World, the Living Water, and our scapegoat. His work also ripped the veil between us and the Holy of Holies giving us direct access to God’s presence through the Holy Spirit given at Pentecost. Check out God Set His People Apart @ The Bible from A to Z to discover the similarities between the giving of the Law at Mt. Sinai and Pentecost and more.

See you next week as we leave Mt. Sinai and head into the desert with God’s people.
