“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Go to Pharaoh and say to him, “Thus says the Lord, ‘Let My people go, that they may serve Me.’” (Exodus 8:1). Hollywood film directors often miss the all-important ending of this verse. There’s a reason the people are to be let go – “that they may serve Me”, says the Lord. The Israelites weren’t to leave Egypt and do whatever they wanted; they were leaving behind an evil taskmaster and vowing their service to the One who would be as a loving Father to them. The same is true for you and me. We’re to stop serving our old master sin, and instead spend the rest of our lives serving our loving heavenly Father.
