Musings on Exodus #2

“This, it seems to me, is what it means to ‘preach Exodus’ – to confront people with the jealous God who redeemed them; who expects their exclusive allegiance and fidelity; who wants them, mind, body and spirit; who demands their undivided attention; who will not brook any rivals for his affection; and who in his tender-hearted compassion and loving kindness is committed to doing what it takes to maintain that relationship, including provision for reconciliation and fellowship in the face of Israel’s addiction to sin”
