DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Deuteronomy 10-12
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing. Therefore love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 10:17-19)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18), God loves all people and God wants to save all who will come to Him for salvation (John 3:16-17). God is just and fair to all, and God is not partial to anyone (Deuteronomy 10:17-19). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how the second pair of the Ten Commandments of God was recorded, Moses shared the messages of God about the blessings that will come to the people of Israel as they live in obedience to God, and also shared the truth that a place of worship is where God chooses to put His name. As believers in God, it is always important to keep in mind the key messages of love covered in today’s study of the Bible. That is, pertaining to the greatest commandments of God, to love God, and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Deuteronomy 10:17-19 and Matthew 22:37-40). And in addition, as believers in God, it is always important to reverence God, to serve God, to worship God, to honor God, to obey God, and to praise God (Deuteronomy 10:20-21, Deuteronomy 11:1, and Psalm 34:1). God is good to all and His mercies are over all His works (Psalm 145:9). Our God is so awesome! Thank God for all His blessings in our lives! Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24)
“If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” (John 13:17)
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)
“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (John 14:23)
