PASSING THE SPIRITUAL TORCH

OBSERVATION: DEUTERONOMY IS A COLLECTION OF MOSES’ FINAL WORDS TO ISRAEL BEFORE HIS DEATH. HE PASSED THE SPIRITUAL TORCH TO A NEW GENERATION. EVERY NEW GENERATION NEED TO COMMIT THEMSELVES TO FAITH AND LOYALTY TO GOD’S WORD. APOSTASY IS A REVOLT AGAINST THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD.

INTERPRETATION: DEUTERONOMY 32:7 (NKJV) REMEMBER THE DAYS OF OLD, CONSIDER THE YEARS OF MANY GENERATIONS, ASK YOUR FATHER, AND HE WILL SHOW YOU.

POINTS TO PONDER: MOSES MADE HIS CASE REGARDING GOD’S WISDOM.

IT SPEAKS TO HIS FAITHFULNESS COMPARED TO ISRAEL’S FAITHLESSNESS.

YOU WOULD THINK THE ISRAELITES WOULD HAVE DELIGHTED IN GOD’S WISDOM AND GUIDANCE AFTER BRINGING THEM OUT OF EGYPTIAN BONDAGE. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY DRIFTED INTO IDOLATRY AND CORRUPTION. THEIR REBELLIOUS CHOICE BROUGHT CONDEMNATION.

IT IS ENCOURAGING TO KNOW GOD SUPPLIES HIS MERCY TO BELIEVERS. WE MUST INSTRUCT OUR YOUNG BELIEVERS IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD, ESPECIALLY HIS MERCY. IT WILL HELP THEM UNDERSTAND HIS GRACE, HIS PROVIDENCE, REDEMPTION AND PRESERVATION. HOW ELSE CAN THEY LEARN UNLESS MATURE BELIEVERS INSTRUCT THEM?

THE CHURCH MUST BE PROACTIVE IN THIS ENDEAVOR.

APPLICATION: THE TORCH MUST PASS TO EVERY GENERATION!
