Obey me fully and keep my covenant
Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other gods before me.
Is God our 1st priority in life?
Is there anything / anyone who is more important to us than God?
May God help us to go to him 1st and not keep Him as our last resort.
Let us think of Him ALWAYS.
Let us remember him when in trouble.
Let us be grateful to him when our prayers are answered.
Luke 17:17,18 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”

Verse of the Day📜
Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine –Exodus 19:5
Moses explained the conditions of the covenant to the people of Israel, who responded, by agreeing “We will do all that the Lord has spoken”. God promised that if they would obey His voice and keep the conditions of the covenant, He would exalt Israel above all the Gentile nations round about. He promised they would be His own ‘treasured possession‘, and pledged that they would be His special people – holy unto the Lord, and He would be their God.
Although the whole earth belongs to the Lord for He made it.. and by His word everything was created, Israel was to be His chosen nation, by whom the rest of the world would hear that God is the Lord and through whom would come a Saviour – Who would save His people from their sin and redeem all whom God credited with righteousness – by faith.
God had already made an everlasting covenant with their forefather, Abraham, when He promised to bless him and give him and his descendants, the land of Canaan, as an everlasting inheritance. The Law of Moses was added to the Abrahamic covenant. It’s purpose was to reveal God’s glory to His people and to point them to Jesus, their Messiah.
The perfect Law of God was not designed to save His people from their sin, but to reveal the sinfulness in the heart of everyman. It was to expose man’s need for a Saviour. The purpose of the Mosaic Law was explained by Paul, who described it as ‘a schoolmaster, to point us to Christ’. So let’s be the TREASURED POSSESSION of our Lord Jesus by obeying his statutes.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the word you have given us. We thank You that today You are carrying out Your plans and purposes through the Body of Christ, which is the Church, and thank You that by faith in Lord Jesus we are also Your precious possession. Thank You that the day is coming when You will ratify Your New Covenant with the house of Judah and the house of Israel and that Christ will return to set up His kingdom on earth as King of kings and Lord of lords. We praise Your holy name,
In the name of Jesus,
