Through today’s scripture reading we hear again of God’s ongoing promise. It is one that God keeps reminding us of and returning us back to. God brought US out of Egypt. God brought US out of slavery - those things that constrain us, bind us, and disconnect us from each other and from God in Jesus Christ. What in your life is disconnecting you from Jesus? What in your life is disconnecting you from others? How can you participate in God’s ongoing promise of redemption?
"Returning to the Promise" is a seven-week series based on stories from the Old Testament. Often, we are told that the Old Testament is full of judgement, wrath, and anger. But the Old Testament describes the very character of a loving God who continues to return to the faithful promise of unconditional and ongoing love for all of creation. It is why we first ground ourselves in "God is love" from 1 John 4.
