Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 27 - Morning

“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am
giving you today for your own good?”

- Deuteronomy 10:12-13

A Five Phrase Summary    

As Moses reviews with Israel the Covenant they have with God he uses the articulate summary statement that begins with "and now." Moses tells Israel this is ultimately an exhortation that will produce results "for your own good."

The question is asked in summary, "What does the Lord your God ask of you?" The answer comes in five phrases that have been repeated for forty years. Joshua, the Psalmist and the Prophets will refer to these same statements. More importantly, there is evidence to support the suggestion that Deuteronomy was Jesus' favorite book since these phrases, along with others from Deuteronomy, where foundational in his teaching.

The five phases to summarize the Lord's expectations are:
1. "Fear the Lord God"
2. "Walk in obedience to him"
3. "Love him"
4. "Serve him"
5. "Observe the Lord's commands and decrees"

This is not a means of salvation, but the maintenance of a relationship with God and a means of success in the life and mission he has called them to. Ultimately this is for their benefit and success.

It is noticeable that these five phrases are also links that form a complete chain. And, all the links must hold for the chain function. A believer cannot "fear" and "love" the Lord if they do not "obey" and "serve" him. The fifth phrase, "Observe the Lord's commands" would only be possible if the Lord was both honored his desires were implemented.

Micah (750-686) makes a similar statement to all mankind in Micah 6:8 when he says:

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
– Micah 6:8

"We are philosophers - not in words - but in deeds!"
- Cyprian, 250




Something to Ponder??

The Scripture records Jesus speaking from the
cross seven times:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”…“I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise”…“Dear woman, here is your son…Here is your mother”...“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”…“I am thirsty”…“It is finished” …“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”

The coins Vespasian struck in 71 AD are called Judea Capta coins (or, "Judea Conquered"). These coins were struck after Rome's four year war with the Jews ended with the defeat of Judea and the 70 AD destruction of Jerusalem. Jesus predicted this in 30 AD in Luke 21:20-24 & Matt. 24:2.
