Covenant Renewed

Covenant Renewed

Preacher:
Passage: Exodus 24
Service Type:

As was said last week, all people need rules to live by and the Israelites were no different.  God wanted to ensure that they became a nation and worshipped Him, not false gods, so made a covenant agreement with the Israelites- if they worshipped Him, He would protect them.  Here we see the people wholly agree to follow God - “we will do everything the Lord has said; we will obey”.  Their long term failure to do this lead ultimately to the coming of Jesus and the new covenant, which we celebrate every time we take Holy Communion.
