God’s Chosen People
When the children of Israel finally entered the Promised Land three things happened. All the males were circumcised. The people celebrated the Passover Feast. God stopped providing manna. Each required faith in God. Each took them deeper into humble dependence on God. This is the walk of those who are God’s chosen people: deeper faith, deeper dependency, deeper commitment.
