Deut 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Deut 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
Tonight at bible study we talked about "what a nation and what promises." Israel had two great things going for them.
1 They had a God that is near unto them that they could call on.
2 They had great promises given to them by their great God.
While there is a clear distinction in the bible between Israel and the new testament church, the church also has the same great God and great promises.
The promises we have are contained in the bible. The bible gives us wisdom, comfort, guidance, strength, perspective, and hope.
You too can enjoy the great God of the bible and the book (the bible) He's given us to know Him and serve Him.
So, grab your bible and discover this great God and His wonderful promises.
