Adam’s Devotional – May 10-16, 2018

From Adam”THE BIRTHDAY BOY!” DeVries…

Number 1: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me.” Many people say that commandment 1 of 10 starts with you shall, but it doesn’t.  The 10 commandments and the spiritual life in general are always anchored in what God has already done.  God has already freed the Hebrews from slavery. God has already sent the Son into the world in order that through Him the whole world might be saved. God has already freed us from our slavery to sin. God has already decided to be with and for us right here and now. This first commandment starts with God. It starts with God saying, “I am yours.”  Literally “I am the Lord your God.” What is your history with God? When is the last time you experienced God or sensed God’s presence? Do you hear the voice of God, through the narrative of scripture, saying, “I am yours; will you be Mine?” What has God already done in your life and in the lives of those around you?
God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.
