Deuteronomy 31:12 Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
Moses is about to leave this world. His ministry is coming to an end. He is giving last minute instructions to the people of God. He has gathered them together. He is giving them the books of the law, Genesis to Deuteronomy. He tells them to gather the people together to read and listen to the Word of God-this book that we are currently reading.
He said that reading this book would cause them to learn what they needed to know, to cause them to fear and respect God, and that they would do what God wanted them to do with their lives.
That would be good for them and it is good for us. Many people may not love God even as much as they want to. They would say they struggle in their walk with God when the problem very likely would be that they do not read His book.
This book will build your faith. It will cause you to learn to love and serve God. God’s Word makes the difference in our lives as the Holy Spirit uses it to work in and through us!
