Deuteronomy is probably one of the most challenging books in the entire Bible. Someone will say, BUT WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW! To which I say, “Amen! Amen! Amen!”
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
If 2 Timothy 3:16 – 17 is still in effect, and it is, then we had better take the O.T. seriously! Deuteronomy 8:2 says:
Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
We will expand on this verse this Sunday, but for now… think on these things:
1. In what areas of your life has the Lord tested you to see if you will follow Him?
2. In what areas of your life has the Lord tested you that you may share your faith with others?
3. Are you grateful that the Lord uses you and your circumstances?
