Coming out of Egypt the Lord has graciously been alongside and caring for the Israelites. Yet the Israelites continue wandering in their hearts, asking all kinds of questions. The Lord faithfully reaches out and reveals himself to the Israelites to show his commitment to them in hopes them may understand the seriousness of his relational covenant and remember to whom they belong.
“You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession." - Exodus 19:4-5
