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.

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
