Reading along with us in Deuteronomy? Here’s today’s reading:

Deuteronomy 10 (ESV)

“At that time the Lord said to me, ‘Cut for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and come up to me on the mountain and make an ark of wood. And I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets that you broke, and you shall put them in the ark.’ So I made an ark of acacia wood, and cut two tablets of stone like the first, and went up the mountain with the two tablets in my hand. And he wrote on the tablets, in the same writing as before, the Ten Commandments that the Lord had spoken to you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly. And the Lord gave them to me. Then I turned and came down from the mountain and put the tablets in the ark that I had made. And there they are, as the Lord commanded me.”

(The people of Israel journeyed from Beeroth Bene-jaakan to Moserah. There Aaron died, and there he was buried. And his son Eleazar ministered as priest in his place. From there they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land with brooks of water. At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord to stand before the Lord to minister to him and to bless in his name, to this day. Therefore Levi has no portion or inheritance with his brothers. The Lord is his inheritance, as the Lordyour God said to him.)Continue Reading

  1. Oh, the joy of being counted among Abraham’s offspring because of Christ’s righteousness! Thanks be to God for what He has done for us!!

    “So also, ‘Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.’ Understand, then, that those who have faith are the sons of Abraham. The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and foretold the gospel to Abraham: ‘All nations will be blessed through you.’ So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.” Galatians 3:6-9

    “Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may rest on grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. As it is written: ‘I have made you a father of many nations.’ He is our father in the presence of God, in whom he believed, the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not yet exist……

    “Now the words ‘it was credited to him’ were written not only for Abraham, but also for us, to whom righteousness will be credited—for us who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our trespasses and was raised to life for our justification.” Romans 4:16-17, 23-25

    Now then…how shall we live in light of this great and glorious salvation?

  2. After recounting the making of the second tablets and the ark of the covenant, Moses shares in Deuteronomy 10:12-14 the conclusion that they/we should come to after what he has shared in chapter 9 and here in 10. and what a powerful set of verses they are. They provide in many ways what it all, all of life, boils down to. Fear God and walk in His ways. Love Him and observe His commands…for your own good (don’t miss that!).

    And if 12-14 is the what to do, verses 14-22 is the why. Follow Him because He is awesome…powerful and kind, merciful and loving. I like v21….He is your praise!
