People seek for ‘god’ but they do not invent God, the true God. The Bible emphasises again and again that God breaks into the human predicament. He sees, He cares, He acts. In Israelite history God indicated to all the world that He is a saving God. He demonstrated to Israel His own heart of judgment and forgiveness. He did this in the death of a lamb. He freed Israel to belong to Him, not to Pharaoh or to evil. The New Testament picks up the story in a grand finale, but it is not as simple as one might suppose. God is leading. His presence is glorious but there is much opposition! The Christian heart needs to engage with the Exodus stories as God’s provision for their understanding and discipline – the practice of their Christian lives.
