In our OT passage Moses continues to recount the least 40 or so years to the Israelites, reminding the younger generation how the Lord brought their parents out of Egypt with miracles and wondrous signs. He reminds them of their sin which resulted in the wandering in the desert for 40 years until all the older generation had died off. He reminds them that they are a chosen people, and that they are to glorify God by living holy lives, completely different than the nations around them. He tells them that they will conquer the nations currently living in the Promised Land and challenges them not to forget the Lord and all His deeds when times are easy. He recounts the 10 commandments and reminds them of the importance of continuing to tell their children about all that the Lord has done for them.
Deuteronomy 6 4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[k] 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
I love this passage. Our God is the Only true God, and we are to love Him with our entire being, and teach our children to do the same. Are we making this a priority in our lives every day?
In Acts 2 we see the events of Pentecost - the Holy Spirit coming, as Jesus promised, and filling the believers; Peter preaching an amazing sermon that is heard by everyone in their own language.
Our OT and NT passages together testify to our awesome God, His amazing power, and what He has done for us for our good and for His glory!
