Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Welcome back to Deuteronomy. Like a long-lost friend we are looking forward to returning to this rich book of the Bible in 2021. In Deuteronomy 5 we are going to encounter the second giving of the Decalogue (popularly known as the Ten Commandments). God’s plan was to describe principles of covenant relationship that would bring life to his people. As the One who redeemed them from slavery and graciously led them to the promised land, God wanted to reveal his will so that they could flourish. As we encounter this well-known list, let’s ask God to help us “hear,” “learn,” and “do” what he commands. Let’s ask God to help us abide in the vine and bear the fruits of covenant love and obedience. Let’s look to Jesus for mercy and strength since he perfectly fulfilled the law and is willingly imputes his righteousness to all who believe in him.
