Day 308 - Deut. 27, Verses 11-26

V. 11-13 Moses appoints two groups to stand on these separate mountains which were just inside the promised land. On Gerizim, to bless the people (for obeying)...on Ebal, to pronounce the curses if they disobeyed the law. Can you find the blessings? Not one word.
To summarize our whole chapter...v. 1-10 present to us the heart of a gracious God, and the thoughts of God toward His beloved people. Yet verses 11-26 show us the actual condition of these people... they were on the ground of law...their blessings would depend on their obedience! So the sad result of Israel's real state before God. BUT because of God's grace and love, He has sent a Savior, Who has taken the curse for us and brought us into the position of total blessing. Read Rom. 6:1515What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. (Romans 6:15).
