“And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun. And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel: And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” (Deuteronomy 32:44-47)
Today’s Morsel: In some of Moses’ final instructions to the children of Israel, he told them that the instructions that he was giving to them were their life, and he said that through them they would prolong their days in the land. The Apostle Paul tells us that once we are baptized in the name of Jesus (Galatians 3:26-29) that we become heirs to the promises of God. The same promises that God gave to Israel from His word are now for those of us who have been born-again. John said, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full” (1 John 1:1-4). If you want to prolong your days and have life, then you must obey the word. For the Word (Jesus Christ) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
Sing: What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see, when I look upon His face, the One who saved me by His grace. When he takes me by the hand and leads me through the Promised Land, what a day glorious day that will be.
Thought For Today: The word is your life.
