Deuteronomy 11 – Love and Obey

Good evening y’all. Today we are studying Deuteronomy chapter 11.

Be blessed 🙂

When we say we love someone, we will naturally want to do things to please them; to make sure they are happy. So it is with our relationship with God. If we truly love him, we will try as much as we can to make sure we obey Him and do the things that are pleasing to Him.

I noticed Moses kept on repeating the obedience bit. In the NLT version, the word “obey” was used 7 times…that’s to show how important obedience is. We enjoy a lot of blessings when we obey and do things Gods way.

I like how the Message version puts verses 22- 25…..

“That’s right. If you diligently keep all this commandment that I command you to obey—love God, your God, do what he tells you, stick close to him—God on his part will drive out all these nations that stand in your way. Yes, he’ll drive out nations much bigger and stronger than you. Every square inch on which you place your foot will be yours. Your borders will stretch from the wilderness to the mountains of Lebanon, from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea. No one will be able to stand in your way. Everywhere you go, God-sent fear and trembling will precede you, just as he promised”.

This promise has a condition of obedience attached to it. If we do our bit, then God will fulfil the promise He has given.

I pray God will give us the grace to continually obey Him and live a life thats pleasing to Him. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today, lets choose a life of obedience.

Thanks for joining today 🙂
