As people, it is apparent that we are remarkably bad at choosing people for the best reasons. We are predictably drawn to what we see, to the outward appearance. This is often the natural inception of our understanding of others, and this is not always a bad thing. However, we have to move to a much more accurate assessment of someone by viewing who they are in the inside. When we miss this, we end up with all kinds of trouble.

The Exodus: How God Loved His Bride
Theme: The Ten Commandments. The Law is the pact of a holy God given to an unholy people to help us know our God.

There is power behind the law to live the married life with God. When we don’t fulfill the law we must go to the cross. It’s the cross that exchanged life, it’s the cross that exchanged the broken law for a perfect one, Jesus was the perfect one that went on the cross, He is the fulfiller of the law. We have the power now, in the Lord Jesus Christ to be married to God, to enjoy God.
