DAY 128: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
As we continue our journey through the book of Exodus, the Lord was now explaining the implementation and execution of the 10 Commandments to Moses.
Ask the Lord to give you His understanding of Exodus 21-24. Read Exodus 21-24. Let’s journey!
Exodus, the second book of the Jewish Torah and the Christian Old Testament, was written by Moses, whose life we begin to see in this book. The book of Exodus begins nearly 400 years after the book of Genesis ends, and the Hebrews have become slaves in Egypt, a sinful land. Throughout the book of Exodus, we can see how sin damages a person’s relationship with the Lord, and how the sins of a nation can damage the nation’s relationship with the Lord.
Exodus 21-24: The Lord explains the implementation of the Ten Commandments to daily living. It is an explanation of the legal code and moral code of God. God promises to protect the Israelites on their journey to the land that God has promised them provided the Covenant is kept by them. God reaffirms the Covenant with the Israelites. (Exodus 21:1-24:18)
As you read chapters 21 through 24, carefully consider how sin affects a person’s or a nation’s relationship with the Lord God. What sin occurred in today’s reading? What was the consequence of that sin, or what was the consequence of a sin recognized in a pervious reading? What sin is affected your relationship with God? How can you repair your relationship? Are you listening and looking for God in your life?
