03 January A.D. 2021 Deuteronomy 9:1-10:11 – Evening (Rev. Michael Grasso)

In Deuteronomy 9:1-10:11 Moses continues to explain what loving God with all your heart, soul, and strength means. Here he addresses the question concerning why God is bringing the Israelites into the land. What do they contribute to their salvation? Ultimately, they contribute only their sin. They are not brought into the land because of their righteousness but only by the grace of God. Salvation is by grace alone. The gospel according to Moses is the same as the gospel according to Christ. As it was with the people of God in the wilderness, so it is with us. We are saved only through grace and there can be no boasting. Love for God develops as we recognize his grace in salvation apart from works.
