God’s Command Reveals God’s Will (journal 3)


This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years… Deuteronomy 30:19-20

This reveals that God’s will for His people is life. Death is linked to curses and evil (also see Deut 30:15)

He commands the choice of life, and calls the heavens and earth as His witnesses, so no one can legitimately blame Him for any other outcome. we might experience.

The choice is conditional on obedience: to the Law under the old covenant, and by faith under the new.
