Exodus 23:14-24:18, Part 2

August 16, 2012
The Promised Land was God’s free gift to the Israelites. They didn't earn it; they received it by grace. That’s like salvation for the Christian. It’s a free gift, but maturity is a process of daily dependence upon God.

There are some interesting parallels between Israel and the church. As believers, we are not bound by the law, but we obey God’s law because of our love for Jesus Christ.
August 15, 2012
In the Law, God established His familiar pattern of six-and-one. Just as the people were to rest one day each week, they were to cultivate the land for six years and let it lie fallow on the seventh.
August 14, 2012
The Law of Moses in Exodus has been compared to the earlier Code of Hammurabi. They are similar in some ways, but the Law of Moses is more merciful, and it reveals a God of love who protects the innocent.
August 13, 2012
God's Law can never make us righteous — that is not its purpose. Instead, it reveals God's standard to us, and it provides a gauge of just how bad we are. And it points us to the Savior.
August 10, 2012
God’s Law is not only judicial, it’s relational. When people depart from God, they depart from the His Law. It's because people depart from the Lord that they depart from honoring marriage, life, and many other things.
August 9, 2012
The capital punishment laws in Exodus were instituted not for retribution, but for restitution. On a personal level, we are called to forgive. But on a societal level, there are laws to protect life.
August 8, 2012
As we study God's Law in Exodus 21, we remember that it serves as a tutor leading us to Christ, and that we cannot have a relationship with the Lord based upon the Law — only upon redemption through Jesus Christ.
August 7, 2012
For us as Christians, the Ten Commandments are a compass, to help us plot our course; a thermometer, to gauge our love for God, a mirror, to show us ourselves, and a road sign to point us to Jesus Christ.
August 6, 2012
The first four of the Ten Commandments are vertical; they deal with our relationship with God. The last six are horizontal; they are “man to man,” or “woman to woman,” about how we relate with each other.
August 3, 2012
God gave us His law so we could live in harmony together and be conveyed through life happily and safely. But the law also reveals the truth to us — how far we have fallen short of God’s standards.
