Deuteronomy 18:18 NIV
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him.
Talking to Moses, God promises that another will come like him, who will speak God’s words to his people. We often think of Moses as being the Law-Giver, but this is misleading. He was not really about laws and commands, but about relationship and how we can live in a relationship with God. This then is what Jesus is about too, born to bring us into relationship with his Father.
Father, thank you that through Jesus I can call you that!
