Faith Is Hearing And Doing
Deuteronomy 4:1: Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you.
This devotional was quoted by Dwight Moody. It was written by someone that had the initials C. H. M. I have no idea who C. H. M. is.
C. H. M.:
*Hearken* and *do,* that ye may *live* and *possess.* This is a universal and abiding principle. It was true for Israel, and it is true for us. The pathway of life and the true secret of possession is simple obedience to the holy commandments of God. We see this all through the inspired volume, from cover to cover. God has given us His Word, not to speculate upon it or discuss it, but that we may obey it. And it is as we, through grace, yield a hearty and happy obedience to our Father*s statutes and judgments, that we may tread the bright pathway of life, and enter into the reality of all that God has treasured up for us in Christ.
