4 ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. 5 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, 6 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 19:4-6
The Lord reminded Moses how he and the Israelites got where they were, an exodus that occurred more than two months prior.
You may think that Moses would be a fool to forget so easily all the Lord’s accomplishments thus far. At this point in the journey, Moses was up to his ears in settling disputes, assuaging their complaints, feeding the masses, and just getting them moving.
In other words, he had day-to-day life to content with.
He needed to be reminded about the important aspects of the trip.
See any similarities to our life?
We need to be reminded as often as he did about the Lord’s great and mighty works in our lives.
Sure, we could remember, but like Moses, we don’t.
