We often think of grace as a only a New Testament principle, not so, grace began in the Garden of Eden. Tozer said it well, "Grace indeed came by Jesus Christ, but it did not wait for His birth in the manger or His death on the cross before it became operative."

What does the Lord your God require? Moses asked in a rhetorical question in Dueteronomy 10:12-13. Simply...fear the Lord, walk in all His ways, love Him, serve Him with a your heart and soul, and keep his commandments. How easy is that? Apart from the transforming work of Christ and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit....mission impossible. And even with His direct intervention I buck the system. Praise the Lord for His tender mercy.

We love to play the blame game as humans. It started in the garden with Adam and Eve, and we have been playing it well from the beginning. I was struck recently by Moses of all people who got caught up in the blame game. In Deuteronomy 1:37; 3:26; 4:21 Moses said because of you (children of Israel) God will not let me go to the Promised Land. No Moses it was you who struck the rock. We are just like Moses, always looking for someone to blame.
