God offered to his people, the Israelites that they could be a nation of Priests and his representatives to the world. But thinking him harsh and scary, the people asked that God not talk to them but only through Moses and only through a set of laws that which they either obeyed or were punished. This was the beginning of the Mosaic Law and the Old Covenant under which God was forced to deal with men.
Today, we often make the same choice, choosing to live under his rules and trying to enforce those rules upon others, rather than living in the New Convenant God has offered to us and the world. Paul Swearengin taught this message at The River Church in Fresno on May 7, 2017 about how to live the life God planned for you to lead as a Priest and as his representative to the world under his New Covenant with humanity.
