Exodus 19:3-6  Moses went up the mountain to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain: “This is what you must say to the house of Jacob and explain to the Israelites: ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you will carefully listen to me and keep my covenant, you will be my own possession out of all the peoples, although the whole earth is mine, and you will be my kingdom of priests and my holy nation.’ These are the words that you are to say to the Israelites.” (CSB)

Mark Twain said, “History never repeats itself, but it does often rhyme.” Here we see one of history’s rhymes. God said to Abraham in Genesis 12:2,

I will make you into a great nation, 
I will bless you, 
I will make your name great, 
and you will be a blessing.

God blessed Abraham to bless the whole world. Now he blesses the people he has saved from Egypt and delivered to Mount Sinai. They, too, are blessed to be a blessing. They are to be a “kingdom of priests” and a “holy nation.” They are to represent God to the world and to live lives dedicated to knowing him and making him known.

This assignment is given again to us today. The Apostle Peter says,

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his possession,
so that you may proclaim the praises of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭9‬-‭10‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Like Abraham and Israel, we are chosen by God and assigned by him to bless others as we have been blessed. We are to declare God’s greatness and goodness and to invite others into his light and the life he gives. 

You are part of God’s Light and Life Brigade. 

Who will you bless today?

I will extend to others what God has extended to me.

Our Father, you have blessed us so abundantly. Make us carriers of your light and life. Use us to deliver others from darkness and welcome them into your light and life. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
