Brought to the Borders of a Promised Land
They are not just idle words for you – they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess. (Deuteronomy 32:47)
A new generation of Israelites stood on the banks of the Jordan River eager to march into the promised land from God. One decision born of a lack of trust in God had kept their parents out of Canaan. This new generation had a chance to make a different choice.
In Moses' farewell speeches to Israel he sets out for them a way of life and death, of blessings or curses. Deuteronomy is the "constitution" of a new nation, God's treasured possession formed for holiness and godliness. Before setting foot in their new land, Israel is invited to make a commitment where all of life – toward God and with one another – is worship and praise to the Lord their God who brought them out of Egypt into a land of their own.
