What God Did

How much is contained in the following? “And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him from the mountain, saying, ‘Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself”‘” (Exodus 19:3, 4).
Israel saw God place plagues of an enormous nature on the Egyptians. He not only humiliated the enemies of Israel, but He brought Israel to Himself, doing so on eagles’ wings. What a beautiful picture.
Oh, Israel, did you know what had been done for you?
How much is contained in this? “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:18).
The church has learned that God placed our sins upon His blessed Son Jesus Christ. God defeated our enemy Satan at the cross, and by that Jesus brought us to God.
Oh, Church, do you know what has been done for you?
