Advent Day 11: Peace – Gospel in Life

Devotional

Advent Day 11: Peace

SECOND WEEK OF ADVENT – WEDNESDAY December 13, 2023


READ Exodus 20:1-17
The Ten Commandments.

REFLECT
Note that God first rescues the people from Egypt, and then he gives them the Ten Commandments. Keeping the Ten Commandments is not what saved them; God had already done that. God did not first give the Law and then deliver the people—first he delivered his people, and then he gave them the Law. Thus we are not saved by the Law, but saved for the Law. The Law is how we conduct our love relationship with God, not the way we merit the relationship. We are saved by faith in Christ’s substitutionary life and death alone.

PRAY
Thank God that he sent his Son, his only Son, to live and die for you.
