Long ago, the Israelites were God’s special people. They became slaves in Egypt. So God sent Moses to free the Israelites from their slavery. The Israelites suffered a lot, but God did not leave them when they were slaves. Then Moses led the Israelites to a new land. God was always with them and helped them serve Him.
God did not choose the Israelites because they were perfect people. They disobeyed God and sinned again and again. But He still loved them. God’s plan was for His Son, Jesus, to be born from the Israelite nation.
When we sin, we are separated from God. But God’s plan is perfect. He sent Jesus to earth to save us from our sins. Verse 10 of our Bible Reading today says, “God’s goal was to finish his plan when the right time came. He planned that all things in heaven and on earth be joined together with Christ as the head.”
Thank God for His wonderful plan. Praise Him and glorify Him today.
