REDEMPTION & COVENANT

The statement of the covenant law always started with the act of redemption of God's part: I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. (Dt. 5:1) Then he gave the commands on how to live. It is the same for us. First, Christ redeems us, then tells us how to live. That is why we preach the gospel to people, not tell them to clean up their act. Paul put it this way: as you received Christ, so walk in him (Col. 2:6) And all of God's commands are "for our good always".. (Dt. 6:24)
