Hear the Lord

To read the Bible in a year, read Deuteronomy 5-7.
Moses gathered Israel to him, and said, “Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your hearing today, that you may learn them and be careful to observe them. The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb…” (Deuteronomy 5.1, 2). The Lord made a covenant with Israel at Horeb and they were at Horeb because the Lord had delivered them out of Egypt. Therefore, Israel had to hear the Lord so that they would learn the covenant and carefully observe it.
Likewise, hear, O Church, to the Lord Jesus for He made a covenant with us on the cross. Since He suffered horribly that we might have a new covenant, let us hear and learn from His covenant that we might be careful to observe whatever He wants us to do.
