Deuteronomy 17:18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: 19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:
Extremely interesting that the king was to write his own copy of the law. He was to read it but more than that he was to write his own copy. If God’s leaders here on earth right now would take into account the need to be in the in the Word on a daily basis it would make a definite difference in our ministries. How long would it have take to write your copy of the law. How much would you have to concentrate on what it said to make a faithful copy. Let us be known as men and women of the Book.
He was to read the Word of God every day of his life so that he might learn to fear God and keep his words in order to do them. This would also help him not be lifted up in his own heart among his brethren. Deuteronomy 17:20. If we made a copy of the Scriptures of our own Deuteronomy 17:18 and then read it every day would we get the idea that God wants the gospel to get to the entire world. Would the Great Commission mean more to us. I believe that it would. We must do all in our power to get men and women to read and study the Word of God to put it into practice in their lives.
