Sorry, it looks like I read too far yesterday and blogged about a section of verses we didn’t even read! Yesterdays post should have been for today…oops.
Anyway, I know we are reading chapter 15 today and I love this story. During my education days, I wrote a couple of papers on it and I’ve taught on it twice in the past 6 years. I love the covenant story of passing through the disemboweled animal carcass and the significance of what God is saying by it. When ever two people made a covenant like this (this was not strictly a God thing) you were stating that you agreed to have done to you what was done to these animals if you broke the covenant. Walking through those “parts” must have been very sobering. God will never break his covenant with us!
This blog was originally written by Pastor Doug Bartel of Hillcrest Church, starting in Spring 2009. Keep that in mind if you read anything that doesn't quite add up to the time of year.
Come journey with us as we read through the Bible in a year. It is our desire to hear what God wants from us and to know his promises as well as warnings. Each day we will read a text and together we will share what we are learning and encourage one another to finish the goal!
