Dan continues teaching from The Story, and the premise of today’s lesson is this: The “God-Life” lived the “God-Way” gives the “God-Blessing.”
In chapter 5 of The Story, God teaches his people how to live a holy life – a set-apart life. And he demonstrates the proper relationship that God will have with His people.
God wants to dwell with us; He wants to be with His people. And your life is a life that God gave you.
How “for God” are you?
“Whoever is for the Lord, come to me.”
Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain and said, “This is what you are to say to the descendants of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel: ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”
Exodus 19:3-6 (NIV)
