SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE DEVOTIONAL FOR APRIL 17, 2023 (GOD MADE CONVENANT WITH ISRAEL)
TOPIC: GOD MADE CONVENANT WITH ISRAEL
OPENING PRAYER: As I read through this passage dear Lord, let your word bring transformation to my life.
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: EXODUS 19:1-25
QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION
• Q 1: What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
• Q 3: Is there any command for me to obey?
From a humble beginning of seventy household members of Jacob’s family that migrated to Egypt, God raised a mighty nation within a space of four hundred and thirty years. Through powerful demonstration of His might, God rescued them from great bondage and oppression in Egypt.
Three months after their deliverance, God established a covenant with them at Mt Sinai as a nation set apart for Himself. Notice God’s purpose of making a covenant with Israel (v.5). The people unanimously agreed to the terms which required their total obedience and consecration (v.8). Did they mean what they promised? Do we too abide strictly by our promise to God? Time will tell.
At God’s demand, Moses consecrated the entire nation to meet with God in worship. Similarly, we, the New Testament believers, have been made a kingdom of priests and a holy nation to God through our salvation in Jesus Christ. We have been set apart for God (1 Peter 2:9).
So what? Ensure to worship God in spirit and in truth and be absolutely obedient to Him.

Thank God for the privilege of being part of His royal priesthood and pray for grace to be a good ambassador here on earth and to glorify Him in all you do.
