“Therefore…” in response to God’s love, protection and provision “obey”. (vs. 9)
Even in OT times, mankind’s obedience was a response to God’s grace. He chose Israel, He delivered them, He led them to the Promised Land. And here Moses reminds them of all God has done for them. He calls the people to obey the Lord’s commands, in response to that grace.
As Christians, we don’t obey God to earn His favor or love; we do it in response to the favor and love He’s already shown us through Jesus. Grace!
Father God, thank You for Your grace. Thank You for loving me first. May I live in Your love and grace today, following Jesus, obeying You.
