Summary of What Deuteronomy Teaches (ASB Excerpt)

What Deuteronomy Teaches Us:

•  God, our Sovereign Lord, has promised to be our Provider and Protector if we obey his commands. He takes delight in blessing us if we obey him. But he will punish us if we disobey him (Deuteronomy 28:63). Both obedience and disobedience have consequences

•  As God’s people, we should live intentionally in response to his love and mercy. God is building a holy community that is united. This community is to actively demonstrate love and justice.

•  Remembering what God has done for us in the past is powerful. It gives us joy and encourages us for the future. Writing down God’s instructions and blessings insures that future generations will continue to benefit from them.

•  Every individual must make his or her own commitment to God (Deuteronomy 5:1-3). No one inherits a relationship with God from parents or grandparents. This also means that no one is bound by the sinfulness or rebellion in their family history. Each individual starts fresh with God.
