Thursday March 9th Exodus 20 : 1-2

GOD spoke all these words:
I am GOD, your God,
who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
out of a life of slavery.

Two of the most generous of God's gifts are possibly the hardest for us to accept and to use wisely: the gift of choice and the gift of freedom. From the beginning, humankind has chosen disobedience which has led to slavery — slavery such as that experienced by the Israelites in Egypt and later in Babylon, and individual slavery to sin in all its vast array.

Why doesn't God give up on us? We've given him enough cause over the millennia, and we carry on doing so daily. Because he is God, our God. He created us with an eternal purpose and he loves us. He sees our failures, our rebellion, but he also sees our striving to follow him. We are not merely a failed experiment but his children whom he knows by name and with whom he wants to share eternity. The life and sacrifice of Jesus shows us just how determined he is to achieve his goal.

Father God, you have loved us with an everlasting love, and showered us with gifts that are beyond our comprehension. Help us to make the right choices, and to avoid those paths which can lead only to slavery of the soul. In the name of Jesus our Saviour, who died to set us free.
