LOVE THE LORD, OBEY HIS COMMANDS
Passage: Deuteronomy 11:1~32
Moses reminded the people to love the LORD and to obey him. He reminded them of the LORD who had never failed to deliver them in all their journeys. They were witnesses of the living God. Therefore, they should observe the commands of the one who had revealed his glory among them and through them. They should faithfully trust and serve the one who had provided their salvation. Then they would be blessed with God's provision in every way.
2. A blessing and a curse (16-32)
Temptations would come, temptations to follow other gods and worship them. Then they would live apart from God's protection. If they fixed the words of the LORD in their hearts and carefully observed them, then the LORD would bless them as he promised them. The LORD offered his people a blessing and a curse-a blessing if they obeyed the commands of the LORD and a curse for disobedience. This choice in fact would be their reality upon entering the Promised Land. Choosing God was a matter of blessing and life.
Prayer : Lord, thank you for revealing yourself to me. Help me to love you with all my heart and soul. Help me to entrust myself to you.
One Word : Love and obey the Lord
