In Exodus 19:4-6, God begins by identifying His work in bringing His people to Himself. While His people may have witnessed His work and experienced His care, I believe that He wants to be sure that they know it was His strength and work which provided security and safety. Once His people recognize His sovereignty, then they can trust Him and His promise to make them His treasured possessions. In order to become treasured possessions, we must obey God and keep His covenant.
God provides our redemption through Christ. John 3:17 (NIV) states, “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” Jesus also proclaimed God’s redemption in John 14:6-7 which states, “…I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well.”
Christian education is our attempt to seek to know the Father by way of knowing Jesus. No one can be reconciled to God except through Jesus. Christian educators communicate, convey and transmit the gospel of Jesus, God’s plan for the redemption of all people, so that all will be part of God’s treasured possession, and priests of God’s kingdom and holy nation.
