Only a living God can deliver

And the Lord said “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.  So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians….” Exodus 3:7-8

 His words to Israel in Egypt are the same words He has spoken to us in Christ:

I have seen

I have heard

I know

So I have come down to deliver

Dead religion offers no hope of deliverance.  It offers only the certainly of a vicious cycle of trying really hard and failing yet again.

But the living God sees

The living God hears

The living God knows

And He came down…..to rescue us.

And even now, when Egypt is a distant memory….He sees….He hears….He knows…..and He comes down.

Sometimes there are these moments when I realize that He is so much more wonderful than I ever imagined.
