Deuteronomy – Choose Life

Choose_Life_Deuteronomy_BOB_2This term we study the book of Deuteronomy. Here we arrive at a point where God has proven Himself faithful by bringing the Israelites to the edge of the Promised Land. Moses gives a series of sermons where he urges them to choose life. Set before the Israelites, set before us, is God’s word giving us a choice between life and death.

Deuteronomy 30:19 – “This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”

 


Talk 12 – Deuteronomy 30

There are so many complex choices in life. But the most important choice is simple and clear. God makes it clear the eternal consequences of the choice and urges us to ‘choose life!’

Placing God first will result in a change in the relationship with fellow humans.

 

Talk 4 – Deuteronomy 4:44 – 5:15

The 10 Commandments: a brief moral code that has become one of the foundations of our world. They were first spoken to a rag-tag bunch of runaway slaves and they were radically different to the cultural thinking of that time, but these ‘10 Words’ have gone on to have a profound effect on the whole Western world – our morality, our Law, the values of our society. One reason why they have endured and had such influence is that they answer the deepest questions of the human heart: Is there really a God? What is God like? How can I live in right relationship with this God? We look forward to hearing what God has for us from this part of His Word this morning.
