It’s one thing to be delivered from Egypt through faith in Jesus Christ. Living in the Promised Land is something else. The story of the Exodus contains a number of lessons about this and Paul tells us what took place is written down so we might avoid the mistakes of Israel. They had a promise of blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience, and it’s unwise to claim the blessings while ignoring the warnings as did Israel. So be very alert, especially if you’re afflicted with either addiction or co-dependency. These not only keep many from ever entering the Promised Land. They can open a door for return to bondage in Egypt.
“Do not be ignorant, but be afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spate you either. Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God; sternness to those who fell, but kindness…provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.”
