• The Mosaic Covenant Devotional

    Deuteronomy 7:6-8

    By revealing His law to Israel after redeeming the nation from Egypt, our Creator establishes the basic principle of sanctification. Strictly speaking, we do not make ourselves holy. First, God saves us from sin and sets us apart as His holy people. Then, we receive and obey His law, expressing our gratitude for His gracious redemption. The Mosaic law is God’s gift of grace, given not as a means to save ourselves but to show us how to live in thankfulness for His salvation. View Resource

  • The Mosaic Covenant Devotional

    Deuteronomy 7:6–8

    The old covenant law testified to the perfect holiness God demands, and it also trained Israel to look for a Savior. It was not through keeping the Law that the ancient Israelites were commanded to seek salvation. As with us, their doing of good works as outlined in Scripture was to be the way in which they thanked God for saving them. We are to do good works, and the old covenant law can guide us in the kinds of works that please our Lord. View Resource

  • Mosaic Covenant I Devotional

    Deuteronomy 7:6-8

    God did not wait for His people to be perfectly holy or for them to know all His law before He redeemed them from slavery in Egypt. This same pattern holds true today. While we were yet sinners, God reached down and redeemed us from our bondage to sin. Thank God for His grace that saves us even before we can be obedient to Him. View Resource

  • Israel to Extend the Kingdom Devotional

    Deuteronomy 7:12–26

    God promised to do through Israel what Adam did not do, and this goal had to be accomplished through the same terms given to Adam — faithfulness to His covenant demands. The Mosaic covenant with its promise of life (Lev. 18:5) reminded the Israelites of God’s purposes for creation and led them to anticipate His keeping of the covenant, to do what He always said He would do. Do you trust in this covenant-keeper — the God-man Christ Jesus? View Resource
