Exodus 6:6 and 7 What does God want?

Deuteronomy 7:6

Ezekiel 36:23-28
In the end, God’s dream of a holy family will be fulfilled.

Galatians 1:1-4
God, our Father

This section speaks to the Jews who wanted to continue in the Law. The purpose of the Law was not to bring righteousness.

The Law was a tutor until Christ came.

Now that Christ has come, we no longer need the tutor.

Because of Jesus, the Jews can have an entirely different relationship with God. He is their Abba Father if they accept Christ as Lord.

Ephesians 1:1-3
God is our Father, and He is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1:15-17; 3:14; and 5:20
We pray to our Father in the name of Jesus Christ.

We were Gentiles, not the people of God.

We were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship, strangers to the covenants, had no hope, and were without God.

We are brought near by the blood of Christ.

Jesus took everything out of the way that separated us from God and Israel.

Through him, we now have access to the Father.

God is our Father, and we are in His household.

We are now God’s habitation.
