35 When the LORD made a covenant with the Israelites, He commanded them: “Do not worship any other gods or bow down to them, serve them or sacrifice to them. 36 But the LORD, who brought you up out of Egypt with mighty power and outstretched arm, is the One you must worship. To Him you shall bow down and to Him offer sacrifices. 37 You must always be careful to keep the decrees and regulations, the laws and commands He wrote for you. Do not worship other gods. 38 Do not forget the covenant I have made with you, and do not worship other gods. 39 Rather, worship the LORD your God; it is He who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”
I love this because this ancient promise is still valid today. It needs no explanation. Great verses to meditate on.
Merciful and gracious God, we come before You to ask Your forgiveness of our sins. Turn our hearts toward You and reveal to us the idols and things that we place above You. Forgive us our sins and lead us in the way everlasting. In Jesus holy Name Amen.
