THE GOD – IDENTITY

"I will be your God".

Ex 6:7 NIV

There are sometimes characteristics by which nations are known. The Australians are recognized as great cricketers and sportsmen. The Germans are renowned for their engineering, the French for their cuisine, and so forth. Such tags are useful as long as we don't regard them as definitions.

In the book of Exodus we find God initiating a new phase in the story of the Israelites. They had spent some four hundred years working as slaves to the Egyptians who had been hard, unyielding taskmasters. Then along came Moses and God used him to lead his people out of their bondage. In preparing Moses for his historic role as leader-cum-liberator God made a number of promises. One of them was this, "I will be your God". We do not know what religion the Israelites had practiced in Egypt. Their life had been so wretched that they had been all but ground into the earth. As well as being released from their servitude, they needed a new identity. This was to be it. They would be the people of the God, Jehovah. This was how they were to think of themselves, and how they were to portray themselves to other nations. God had chosen them centuries ago. Now they were to be resurrected as a people and their relationship to this God would define them. Amongst the nations of the world God would define them.

Let your knowledge of, and relationship to, Jesus Christ define you. Let his love be the hallmark of your life and the dominant influence in everything you think and do. Serve him and witness to him. Derive your strength and your way through life from his guidance and grace.

Prayer thought

Lord, let me be known as a believer in and a disciple of Jesus Christ.
