Read Exodus 19 – 20
The Lord tells Moses that the Israelites will be His treasured possession out of all the other nations if they follow Him. If you read the rest of the story, we learn that even though they do not follow well most of the time, He remains faithful.
- In 19:16-20, God gives the people a picture of himself. How does this compare with the picture that you carry in your mind of Him?
- Take a piece of paper and list out the ten commandments.
In Mark 12, Jesus says that the whole law is summed up in the two commands “love God” and “love your neighbor as yourself.” How do you see this worked out in the ten you just listed?
