Exodus 20:2 (NIV) I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
God’s objective is always to bring us into liberty, freedom through Christ Jesus. Each of us has experienced some kind of slavery to some kind oppressor, some kind of sin. The whole purpose of the gospel is to “preach good news to the poor…proclaim freedom to the prisoners…recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed. (Luke 4:18). Entering into a covenant relationship with God obligates us to live by His precepts and obligates Him to His promises to us. It is a wonderful way to live!
