Scripture Quote of the Week

Deuteronomy 6: 16-25 (NIV)

16 Do not put the LORD your God to the test as you did at Massah.
17 Be sure to keep the commands of the LORD your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you.
18 Do what is right and good in the LORD’s sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors,
19 thrusting out all your enemies before you, as the LORD said.
20 In the future, when your son asks you, “What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws the LORD our God has commanded you?”
21 tell him: “We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
22 Before our eyes the LORD sent signs and wonders—great and terrible—on Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household.
23 But he brought us out from there to bring us in and give us the land he promised on oath to our ancestors.
24 The LORD commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the LORD our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.
25 And if we are careful to obey all this law before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness.”

Scripture Quote of the Week

Deuteronomy 6: 16-25(Message)

16 Don't push God, your God, to the wall as you did that day at Massah, the Testing-Place.
17 Carefully keep the commands of God, your God, all the requirements and regulations he gave you.
18 Do what is right; do what is good in God's sight so you'll live a good life and be able to march in and take this pleasant land that God so solemnly promised through your ancestors,
19 throwing out your enemies left and right - exactly as God said.
20 The next time your child asks you, "What do these requirements and regulations and rules that God, our God, has commanded mean?"
21 tell your child, "We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt and God powerfully intervened and got us out of that country.
22 We stood there and watched as God delivered miracle-signs, great wonders, and evil-visitations on Egypt, on Pharaoh and his household.
23 He pulled us out of there so he could bring us here and give us the land he so solemnly promised to our ancestors.
24 That's why God commanded us to follow all these rules, so that we would live reverently before God, our God, as he gives us this good life, keeping us alive for a long time to come.
25 "It will be a set-right and put-together life for us if we make sure that we do this entire commandment in the Presence of God, our God, just as he commanded us to do."
