Deuteronomy 6:3-5 GW Listen, Israel, and be careful to obey these
laws. Then things will go well for you and your population will
increase in a land flowing with milk and honey, as the LORD God of
your ancestors promised you.
Listen, Israel: The LORD is our God. The LORD is the only God.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and
with all your strength.
If we want to know God's blessings on our land again, we have
principles to follow.
Worship only One God
Follow His commands
Honor Him in all we think, say and do.
One faith, one Lord. When we claim religions are little different from
a faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we don't understand
that "religions" are about works. About being good enough to get
noticed. Christianity is about a loving God reaching down to pull us
up. Big difference. There is not a plurality of gods--only one and for
His blessing we need to worship Him and Him alone. Do I?
V. 24 GW The LORD our God commanded us to obey all these laws and to
fear him. These laws are for our own good as long as we live so that
he will preserve our lives. It's still true today.
