Deuteronomy 4:1-8

Over the next couple of weeks we will consider 4 truths we need to apply to our life as WE LIVE IN THE LAND as new covenant believers and followers of Jesus Christ.

Listen – vv. 1-2

These 2 verses could be considered a summary of the entire chapter

Listen to the statutes and rules that I am teaching you

Do them, so that you may live

Go in and take the land

Obeying the Lord becomes a joyful privilege when you realize that His commandments are an expression of His love, and assurance of His strength, invitations to His blessing, opportunities to grow and bring Him glory, and occasions to enjoy His love and fellowship as we seek to please Him.  GOD’S WORD IS THE OPEN DOOR INTO THE TREASURY OF HIS GRACE. (Warren Wiersbe)

Fear – vv. 3-8

(3 results of a proper fear of God)

Your eyes have seen what the LORD did at Baal-peor, for the LORD your God destroyed from among you all the men who followed the Baal of Peor.v.3

But you who hold fast to the Lord – v. 4

A proper fear will keep us from sin

To fear is to respect.  A Holy Fear.


[6] Keep them and do them, for that will be your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’ [7] For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the LORD our God is to us, whenever we call upon him? [8] And what great nation is there, that has statutes and rules so righteous as all this law that I set before you today? – vv. 6-8

A proper fear will lead to understanding and wisdom.
A proper fear will lead to purpose and blessing.
