All The Words We Will Do

 

All the people answered together and said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do!” And Moses brought back the words of the people to the LORD” (Exodus 19:8 NASB). Instead of grace (“I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself” Exodus 19:4 NASB), the people of Israel wanted a part in their righteousness. They told Moses that whatever God said they would do it. They were forgetting that their whole past was all God’s doing. Their escape from Egypt was God’s grace and favor on them. His feeding them in the wilderness, God’s favor. But now they wanted to do something to earn their way. God gave them the Ten Commandments and they still said they could do it. Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound” (Romans 5:20 NKJV). God tightened the noose. If they wanted to walk under a law rather than trusting Him, then they would soon see how much of a taskmaster the law was. Same is true for anyone who wants to live under the law.
