Today’s Bible reading plan from the Five Day Bible Reading Plan: Deuteronomy 1-3; Psalm 36; Luke 5
We all need reminders. That’s why we go to church, listen to sermons, sing songs, and disciple one another–to remind ourselves of the work Christ did on our behalf and how to live out that life Sunday-Sunday.
The book of Deuteronomy is a book that encapsulates in a concise manner everything that had happened during their wandering in the wilderness. The word “Deuteronomy” means “second law,” serving as a copy of all that God revealed in the last part of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers.
Why was this needed? The people of Israel’s wandering was nearing an end. Moses (under the Spirit’s inspiration) spoke these words to God’s people to give them fresh reminders of God’s deliverance and care for them–as well as reminding them of their obstinance and disobedience.
We all need reminders. That’s why I urge you to stay in the Word, go to your church, listen to the Word, preach the gospel to yourself, and disciple one another. Be reminded of the price Christ paid on your behalf to make you right with God! Remember to confess and repent of your sins daily. Pursue holiness! Love your neighbor!
Don’t mind the reminders–we all need them!
