VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL
FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 2019
It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the Lord has brought you out of Egypt.
JUST AS IT WAS TO BE A SIGN FOR THE ISRAELITES, A CONSTANT REMINDER FOR THEM, HOW THAT YAHWEH HAD BROUGHT THEM OUT OF SLAVERY TO EGYPT, GOD HAS GIVEN US HIS HOLY SPIRIT AS A CONSTANT GUIDE, MENTOR, TEACHER, & COMFORTER TO REMIND US OF OUR COVENANT WITH HIM THROUGH WHAT CHRIST DID FOR US AT THE CROSS. HE DELIVERED US FROM SLAVERY TO SIN, AND SAVED OUR SOULS.
WE DO NOT NEED TO GO THROUGH THE ANIMAL SACRIFICES OR ALL THE RITUALS THEY WERE CALLED TO, BUT THE PRINCIPLE IS THE SAME: KEEP COVENANT WITH HIM, HONOUR HIM; DO NOT FORGET WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US, FOR HE HAS SET US FREE FROM SLAVERY TO SIN, & OFFERED US SALVATION.
