Then say to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness. But until now you have not listened.


When God sent Moses to insist that Pharaoh let the Israelites go, God had a purpose and intent behind securing their release, 'so that they may worship me...'

It's a short devotion today. Spend a few moments reflecting on how you use the freedom that you have in Christ to worship and bring honour and glory to God. If that's not something that you can easily identify, then don't panic. Jesus death and resurrection invites you to be relieved of the burden of missing the mark and offers you another chance at life. A life lived as it was designed to be lived, in worship and service to the God who created and redeemed us. The God who came down to be with us so that in turn, we might get to be with Him. There is no greater freedom than to live and fulfil the purpose for which you were made.

PRAYER: Lord God, please forgive me for the ways I use my freedom to serve myself and my own sinful and selfish desires. Thank you that through your son Jesus Christ, I can come to you and boldly admit my mistakes knowing that, in Christ, you will forgive me and guide me back to the path you have set for me so that I may experience the fullness of life that you intended and planned for me at the very beginning. Help me to live a life that always gives glory, thanks and praise to you. Amen
