Caleb and Dave tag-team this message, displaying the wonderful story of God’s power and Israel’s lack of faith. God has radically displayed his power by freeing Israel from Egypt, but freedom doesn’t prove to be easy. Egypt may have let go of Israel, but Israel hasn’t let go of Egypt.
You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
