Holiness – April 8, 2019

Deuteronomy 32.28-52; Luke 12.35-59; Psalm 78.56-64; Proverbs 12.24

As Moses concludes his speeches to God’s people in Deuteronomy, we are told he goes up on Mt. Nebo in order to look over into the Promised Land … the land he would not be able to enter because he failed to demonstrate God’s holiness. In many ways, this is a heartbreaking moment. Here is the man who put up with the disobedience and rebellion of the Israelites, yet at the end of the day, would not be able to join them in the land they were promised. What do you think was going through Moses’ mind as he looked out over this land? What goes through your mind as you read this story?

Questions:

What would you include in a song about your history of following God, recounting both how you had acted, but also what God had done for you?

What have you done today in anticipation of Jesus returning? How have you “kept your lamp burning?”

As you read through this account of God’s people in Psalm 78, how do you think you would have responded to them if you were God? In what ways are you thankful that God does not respond as you would?

How have you worked hard today?
