You shall therefore keep all my statutes and all my rules and do them, that the land where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out. And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation that I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I detested them. But I have said to you, ‘You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.’ I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples.
There are conciseness for not following the Lord. If you are God’s, you need to live for him, not for yourself. If you are a citizen of the eternal city, follow his laws not the laws of the place you happen to be pitching your tent. God will bring us to our eternal home, but we’ve gotta be his. Follow him today.
