Reading through the Bible together
Much of Deuteronomy’s content we have seen in Moses’ earlier books, but there is a difference: This time Moses is personally speaking to his people. It is the end of his life. He is reflective and every word he speaks is filled with emotion. Throughout the book of Deuteronomy, Moses refers to law and obedience.
Interestingly, when Moses talked about the details and essence of the law, we find Jesus referring to his words under several different circumstances. As with Moses, so with Jesus… The law lived out in people’s lives can make them gracious, sympathetic, reasonable, and loving and lovable.
“God, take away my stony selfish heart and write your laws of love deep down in my mind and heart so today my words and conduct will harmonize with Your will.”
