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 – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
