Handling God's Word


You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. (Deuteronomy 4:2)

  • Words matter.
     
  • Especially when they are the very words of God.
     
  • Moses warned Israel, “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God”.
     
  • Moses often reminded Israel of God’s mercy and faithfulness to them in the past.
     
  • But he also stressed the importance of obedience to God’s commands as they prepared to enter the Promised Land.
     
  • He told them that obedience would result in blessings of life and a rich inheritance.
     
  • Every command and regulation mattered to God.
     
  • The value His people placed on God’s Word showed their view of Him.
     
  • Today, when we value God’s Word, handle it with great care, and obey what it says, we give God the reverence He truly deserves.
     
  • God’s Word needs no additions or subtractions.
