Sunday School Lesson (October 6 2019) Obedient Faith Deuteronomy 4:1-8, 12-13
Hello Sunday school teachers, preachers, and students! Welcome to SundaySchoolPreacher.com. I’m not coming with you, but I’ll be with you when you get there. That’s the sentiment I believe Moses feels when he tells the Israelites he won’t make it to the Promised Land. Obedient faith is his hope for the Israelites as he reminds them of the Ten Commandments. He reminds them of the Decalogue and the faithfulness of God. They have wandered in the wilderness for forty years. The old generation has died out and the new generation is poised to invade the land of Canaan. In this text Moses writes about the same events studied last week but from a different perspective. This text is forty years later with the Israelites poised east of the Jordan River. Moses knows he won’t make it into the Promised Land. Soon Moses also would be dead. At this point in Moses’ life he shares with the Israelites his most valuable possession – he reiterates the statutes and ordinances God had given him. Moses gives them the culmination of his life’s work, the very best he has - the word of God. As he looks back on his life he stresses once again how important it is for the Israelites to obey the commands of God.
