Bible in 90 Days Update

I am caught up with my Bible in 90 Days reading- reading now through the book of Deuteronomy.  I haven’t read today’s reading yet, but I plan to do that while I’m making supper.

Deuteronomy marks the end of the reciting of the law.  Moses is retelling the Israelites all that God has done for them and how He has led them through the years in desert.  This was especially necessary because all the original Israelites had now died off and this was the new generation of their children.

This verse (and a repeat of it in several different phrases) caught my eye as I have been reading through Deuteronomy:

 26:16 The LORD your God commands you this day to follow these decrees and laws; carefully observe them with all your heart and with all your soul. 17 You have declared this day that the LORD is your God and that you will walk in obedience to him, that you will keep his decrees, commands and laws—that you will listen to him.

This was the agreement between God and Israel.  They had pledged to FULLY keep His laws and decrees and commands.  Wow!  I’m surely glad for what I know is to come in the New Testament because that is a pretty big order!
