Our Savior’s Church Council Meeting: September 17, 2020

Council Members Present: Pastor Dennis, Pr. Lee A., Gordy N., Trudy P., Norm L., Mardi V., Cathy H.
Lee called the meeting to order.
Pastor Dennis opened in prayer and spiritual thoughts. Exodus 19
60 days after Israelites were delivered out of Egypt, Moses went to God. Telling the people of Israel that GOD
is the only one to listen to. We are to think of how this relates to us now in these days. We should take the
metaphor and apply it to us. Israel in Hebrew means “those who struggle with GOD”. He says, “I brought me
out of your sin-filled condition, now obey my voice.” We reel jus like Adam and Eve. We only apply what we
want to hear. GOD says, “You will be my treasured people of all the people of the world.”
At Sinai, GOD leads and gives Israel divine wisdom on how to live with Him and one another. God’s
rules and regulations are good for all of GOD’s people in order to bless one another.
GOD was preparing the Israelites to be a blessed people just as He prepares us to be a blessed people so
that all the people might be blessed. (Gen. 12).
