Israel met God at Mount Horeb (Sinai) where they were given the Ten Commandments. Moses reminds them, in Deuteronomy 5, that they were terrified by God's appearance and speech! God declared this the right response to his holy presence. When it comes to Christians, this event highlights how different our relationship with God is. Through faith in Jesus we are entirely forgiven and freed from fear of punishment. Through faith in Jesus, our hearts are transformed so that we love God and his commandments. Through faith in Jesus, we are brought into a relationship of love with God. Is fear gone? For the Christian, it is not terror of God which we have but respect for our loving heavenly Father and the Lord who died to save us. How will you show the Lord your gratitude for his incredible gift this week?
