TEXT: DEUTERONOMY 6:17-25 17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers.
19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken.
20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you?
21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
22 And the Lord shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
24 And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.
Key verse: Deuteronomy 6:17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
Since the Lord demands all, if He gives a hundred, all of it. This calls for diligence and carefulness in obeying His word and carrying out His instructions. Diligence and carefulness are required to obey this word. Diligently! That is why you should be careful what you say. You should be careful what you do. You examine yourself before saying a thing or doing a thing, to be sure you are not breaking the word of God. You are not supposed to break it at any time. You see the way others are living their Christian life and you think to live like that and say, “I am even better than them.” You are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10: 12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
Has God told you that He has approved of them? Did God tell you that He has a kingdom for them? And has God told you that He has a crown for them, that you are comparing yourself with them? You are saying, “If this man can do like this, mine has not reached up to his own”. God has condemned him and has condemned you too. Both of you are condemned by God. So be diligent and be careful in your life. It does not matter if everybody fails, you, do not fail. You as a person, do not fail. The Bible says, “Be so diligent and so careful in all your service to ensure you do not break God's commandment, you do not break God's words and you do not break God's instructions. Deuteronomy 6:18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers. God demands complete obedience to His word. Do what is right all the time so that you can be qualified to enter into this heaven where our father Abraham is, where Moses, Jacob, Isaac and the Apostles are. Do everything to ensure you enter this heaven.
Thought for the day: Do everything to ensure you enter heaven.
Song for the day: I must dig a little deeper, Jesus love must be sweeter…
Bible reading for the day: Ezekiel 47-48; 1 John 1
