Week 10 Day 2
In the book of Deuteronomy, an old Moses re-tells the story re-states the commandments describes the rituals once more reminisces a fragment here an important part there
And something new is added something Moses learned during his forty years of walking the wilderness with God--The Lord loves youYou can love God in return
As a matter of fact loving God is the key to obedience and faithfulness.
During Jesus' ministry on earthJesus was asked, "Which is the greatest commandment?" He responded by quoting from Moses "Love God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind."Then Jesus added a second commandment which is a summation of many of the Laws we have read so far "Love your neighbor as yourself."
THE GREAT COMMANDMENT This might be the most important chapter in the Old Testament! Deuteronomy 6
4"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6"These words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7Teach them diligently to your children; talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8Bind them as a sign on your hand, and as frontlets between your eyes. 9Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. 10''So it shall be, when the Lord your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, 11houses full of all good things which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant--12then beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 13''Fear the Lord your God and serve Him. 4You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are all around you. 16"You shall not tempt the Lord your God as you tempted Him in Massah. 18Do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land. 20"When your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What is the meaning of the testimonies, the statutes, and the judgments which the Lord our God has commanded you?' 21Then say to your son: 'We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. 22"The Lord showed signs and wonders before our eyes. 23He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in, to give us the land of which He swore to our fathers. 24The Lord commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day. 25Then it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to observe all these commandments before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us.'''
