Day 36

by Rev Joel Yong

Deuteronomy 6:20-21 ESV
When your son asks you in time to come, What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the rules that the Lord our God has commanded you? then you shall say to your son, We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt. And the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

Our observances as Christians aren’t empty rituals. They remind us of who He is and who we are as a result.

Hence the stories and rites must be understood by adults and taught to all new members of our faith community and to our children so that regardless of age- our faith is in the God who saves and redeems us. We thereafter live our lives in obedience of our Savior.
