Why God Wants to Woo You Into a Covenantal Relationship


After the amazing Exodus from Egypt—where the Israelites were freed after generations of slavery in Egypt, and they witnessed their oppressors drowned in the very sea they had crossed through on dry ground—God had their attention. So He began to teach His people who He was.

He revealed Himself as their provider as He miraculously provided them with water, then daily bread and meat. He also revealed Himself as their healer—He would take care of all their needs.

He then called Moses up the mountain, where He proposed a covenantal relationship with His people. He said that if they would keep His covenant, then out of all nations, they would be His treasured possession. The people of Israel accepted, so God gave instructions on building a tabernacle where He could dwell in their midst.

God wanted fellowship with His people. But they had to approach Him with purity because of His holiness and righteousness, entering His presence in worship and reverence.

He still wants fellowship with His people. After He has freed you from sin and saved you, He wants to woo you into a covenantal relationship. If you will follow Him and obey Him, you can be part of His treasured people out of all nations. All you have to do is say "I do!" and then enter His presence in praise.
