Sometimes we can say the words “ME TOO” in playful participation, but “ME TOO” is often used as a slang term for those in the world who want more stuff or privileges that they see others have, to get these things with minimal work, a generation focused on many worldly desires. It’s like keeping up with the Jones term, but with less work to get there. It’s “I deserve it too” – “ME TOO!!!…”
So here’s one more (better) use of the words: WE ARE LOVED BY GOD, ME TOO, when we stand before God (me too), and when we stand as the future people whom Moses spoke about (me too), and when we become counted by our faith as one of God’s descendants of Abraham’s grains of sand (me too), and when we acknowledge that THE LORD DOES NOT CHANGE, remembering that when He promised to be the God of Israel, to Lord over them in care, He promised to be our God too. WE ARE LOVED BY GOD. ME TOO!!!
ME TOO, CHOSEN. We stand now like the people of old, chosen by God yet failed from His covenant. They broke it then, Adam broke the original, and we were born broken. BUT this does NOT mean God broke His end of the deal. He still stands in agreement, waits in anticipation for repair and reconciliation. Even though the broken people broke promises left and right, before and after entering in the Promised Land, God did not change the rules, instead HE changed the ACCESSIBILITY to the Promised deliverance by sending Jesus, a New Covenant. Yes, JESUS came to be broken instead, absorbing our sins, casting away eternal damnation for those who acknowledge Him as Lord. Jesus came negate the fallenness by His raising of those who believe in Him and His Love – ME TOO.
There should always be less of me and more of THEE in how You, Lord, and I walk in this world.
We shall stand delivered, purchased, and ransomed from our broken deal, to be raised to rule again WITH Him. RAISED to reach, yet it is ONLY BY FAITH that we can enter into His Promise.
God’s agreement with us is to be with us. Let us look to His Mercy and Grace and know His Love. Me too, Lord, WE NEED YOU.
You are standing here in order to enter into a covenant with the Lord your God, a covenant the Lord is making with you this day and sealing with an oath, to confirm you this day as his people, that he may be your God as he promised you and as he swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I am making this covenant, with its oath, not only with you who are standing here with us today in the presence of the Lord our God but also with those who are not here today.
The Offer of Life or Death
Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. Deuteronomy 30:11-16
