Devotionary Podcast

God isn’t apologetic or hesitant when He lays out the consequences for Israel’s inevitable rebellion. They will get exactly what they deserve from the hands of a just and righteous God: His anger and judgment.

Deuteronomy 32:10-18 is intended to remind them of God’s gracious deliverance of them from their captivity in Egypt. But it also paints the very painful picture of their ungrateful response to all He had done for them.

This song would not bring to mind happy memories but it would remind them of their inevitable rebellion against God. They would sing this song, and every time they did they would recount their own unfaithfulness.

Devotionary Podcast

In Deuteronomy 31:23-29, we get a glimpse of Joshua’s less-than-ideal day of commissioning. It wasn’t pretty and it probably wasn’t very enjoyable for Israel’s new leader. But the truth isn’t always pleasant to hear.

Devotionary Podcast

God puts His message in the form of a song that He expects Moses and Joshua to teach to the people of Israel. It’s a dirge, a literal funeral song that tells of the future destruction of Israel for their inevitable unfaithfulness.

Moses wanted Joshua and the people to understand was that, when all was said and done, it was God who had been leading them all along. And it would be God who brought them safely into Canaan.

Today, we’ll be in Romans chapter 1, verses 18-32, where Paul will introduce us to the bad news. He is going to provide us with the dark reality of sin and how it stands in stark contrast to the Good News found in Jesus Christ. They say you’ll never fully appreciate the good news until you fully understand the bad news. So Paul is going to go out of his way to let us know just how bad things had gotten in the world that God had created. Man, made in God’s image, had chosen to turn his back on God and worship anything and everything but God. And his idolatry had led to increasing immorality and an abandonment by God to their own sinful desires. He gave them over. He left them to their own devices. And the consequences were deadly. Unwilling to give God the glory He deserves, mankind was left to seek after God-substitutes, poor imitations of the real thing that would leave them helpless, hopeless and godless.
