The events of the week have given emphasis to our theme this Sunday. There are many questions as the why of hatred and murder. There are few satisfying answers. Our God redirects us to his love. It is that love alone that can transform a heart from death to life, from anger to peace, hatred to hope.
Moses’ final four sermons contained in Deuteronomy contain harsh warnings for anyone that changes God’s word. The stakes were high. The Savior of the world was to come to these Israelites. Sometimes when people hear God’s word, all that is heard is God’s threats of the Law. It doesn’t matter what it said. Sinful man can’t stand before a holy God. This is why we so desperately need Jesus. Hear Jesus and live!
