The Blood of the Covenant (Exodus 24)

We have been spending our time in the book of Exodus looking at God’s picture book of redemption. This book is not merely the story of Israel and how God redeemed them, making them his own people. This book shows how God was going to redeem true Israel and make them his own people. We last saw the people of Israel at Mount Sinai. God had spoken his Ten Commandments to the people. The people ask for Moses to go up to God to receive the rest of the laws and to tell those laws to the people. The Lord tells Moses what to tell the people concerning this covenant in Exodus 20:22-23:33. These laws are called the book of the covenant in this chapter (24:7). This brings us to chapter 24 of Exodus where we will be presented with God’s beautiful covenant with his people. But seeing what God does with the people with the covenant, we will see Jesus more clearly and our relationship to God through Jesus.

Blameless (1 Thessalonians 5:12-28)

When the New Testament writers, led by the Holy Spirit, ended their letters to churches or people, their closings often offer the final concerns and instructions. These are the final directions for the church to pay attention to as he closes the letter. Paul’s concern in these final instructions is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV)

Love One Another (1 Thessalonians 4:9-12)

This year’s theme for the church that the elders wanted us to focus on was called Together. We have looked at how we can improve our relationships with each by looking at the commands in the scriptures describing what we are to do for one another. We considered how we are members of one another who are to bear with one another, serve one another, have humility toward one another, honor one another, speaking to one another properly, confessing and praying for one another, encouraging one another, submitting to one another, and forgiving one another. I hope that this series of lessons through the year has been profitable for you and has encouraged you to grow together with each other as God’s family. Our final command that we will look at is one that is critically important for Christians to show — that we love one another.
