And Moses summoned all Israel and said to them, “Hear, O Israel, the statutes and the rules that I speak in your hearing today, and you shall learn them and be careful to do them. The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. Not with our fathers did the LORD make this covenant, but with us, who are all of us here alive today. -- Deuteronomy 5:1–3 (ESV)
Some people have funny 'rules' or traditions for Christmas. I knew one family that made all their kids brush their teeth and then drink a full glass of orange juice before they could open presents. Other have rules how, when, and in what order gifts are to be opened. These traditions can be fun and form memories. They don't really serve a moral purpose.
God's rules are different. God set out how His creation was to relate to Him and to one another. He did that through laying out the law. These provide us a standard by which we can see what is right, what is wrong, and how we fail on both ends.
This week we take another step in understanding God's redemptive storyline and how it reveals the place and person of Christ as we draw near to Advent. This is a great time to invite someone to join us, and don't forget to check out the rest of the newsletter to get the info on all the upcoming celebrations and meetings!
