Dear Trinity Families,
Here is your Daily Devotion
These are the commandments of the Lord our God. These are not suggestions or opinions. These are commands; there is judgment in store for anyone who breaks them. Fear of punishment can be a powerful motivator to obey. Think of how freely people break the speed limit. But what happens when they see a State Patrol car? Fear of punishment.
God’s judgment can be a terrifying thing and it can motivate people to obey, but that’s not the relationship God wants with his people. He wants a relationship based on love instead. He had just shown his love by saving the Israelites from slavery. Now they could show their love to him by keeping these commandments.
In Lent, Jesus freed us from a slavery far more profound than the slavery the Israelites experienced in Egypt. He freed us from slavery to sin, death, and Satan. Jesus loves us so much that he sacrificed everything for us. Now, saved by his grace, we show our love for God by obeying his commandments.
