What Does the Lord Require?

neglect commandments“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,  To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?”  Deuteronomy 10:12-13

Moses has been recapping the journeys of the Israelites from the time they left Egypt.  Now he tells them what God requires of them:

  • Fear the Lord
  • Walk in His ways
  • Love Him
  • Serve Him with all your heart and soul
  • Keep His commandments.

In Verse 13, he tells them that this is for their good.  These are all things that the Lord requires of us today, and it is for our good.  If we obey these principles, the Lord will be with us and keep us.

Prayer:  Lord Jesus, may we always fear you, walk in your way, love and serve you, and keep your commandments, for our good.
