FEBRUARY- THE ONE TRUE GOD

For a people living in a foreign land, under masters who serve foreign gods, the nation of Israel was understandably confused as to whom they should show true allegiance. I do not minimize their disobedience, I only say that slaves will act like slaves until they are set free.

This was God’s task: to free His people from a slavery embedded deep over four hundred years. The only way to free Israel was to show them how powerful He is, and, conversely, how powerless any other god, principality, man, or beast is in the light of the One True God. His power — not their own—was their only route to freedom.

This is our story in February—God revealing His nature, His power, His holiness. Making a new covenant with a newly free people.

It doesn’t always go well. We have a tendency to misunderstand the incomprehensible.

Matthew and Mark help to illuminate the Mighty God of Exodus and Leviticus. If Leviticus sets fences for right living within a narrow plain—a limited understanding of The One True God—Matthew and Mark broaden both the plain and the fences. God reveals more clearly His character, and clarifies His desire, not for rules, but for relationship.

Though God did not change, Emmanuel, God With Us, changed everything.
