Scripture: Exodus 19:3-7; 20:1-17
“I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now therefore, if you obey my voice and keep my covenant . . . ” (Exodus 19: 4-5)
The drama of deliverance in the Moses story soon gives way to the drudgery of “so now what?!” as the people wander the desert. There is only so much God can do for us without us doing our part. God can give us reason to trust God, God can bless us, protect us, prosper us, and deliver us. But if we are to truly live into our identity as God’s precious and holy ones, we are called to make a commitment of our own free will.
