The Just and Justifier

What did Moses leave behind?
Was it something we could find?
The story in Exodus expanded our view,
Making God great and letting us see anew;
Moses left us a treasure trove,
Over time heating up like a stove;
Where God is our Savior and Holy,
Bringing deliverance from the lowly;
Redeeming a people for His own,
To declare His name to make it known;
While Exodus can be a fun read,
It points to something we all need;
A person willing and able to take our place,
A Mediator who can impart God’s grace;
Taking our place in the judgment seat,
Bearing the load of God’s wrathful heat;
Exodus presents Jesus as that man,
The True Passover Lamb according to plan;
Jesus died as our substitute,
Without him we are destitute;
Therefore God is both justifier and just,
More than worthy to give Him all our trust;
Now we leave behind what we have received,
Our gospel and life because we have believed;
Let our words and lives be about His praise,
With every waking moment all our days!
