A ‘Face to Face’ Relationshipby Mike Bergen | March 31, 2019
Moses had a “face to face” relationship with God and you can, too! At the end of Deuteronomy, a statement is made about Moses that makes him very unusual in history. “Since then no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face …” (34:10).
The Song of the Rockby Daniel Vanderhorst | March 24, 2019
God wants us to know that He, the sovereign King, is full of mercy and perfect in justice, and He will fulfill His purposes and keep his promises to His people in spite of their stubborn folly and rejection of Him. The living Rock is worthy of all our love and obedience, and He will one day make all things new.

Today we have the opportunity to choose life.
Extreme Consequences for Extreme Gloryby Mike Bergen | March 10, 2019
In these two chapters we see God promise extreme blessing when His people trust and obey Him, and we see God promise extreme judgment when people disobey Him. And in both ways, He shows His extreme control and sovereignty over all that happens in the world.
Making Sense of God’s Old Testament Commandsby John Vanderhorst | March 3, 2019
The commands show the need for an ultimate grace Moses: “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me…”
What Will it Take?by Johnny Vanderhorst | February 24, 2019
Moses laid before the people the way of blessing and curse. They primarily chose the curse. Through the better redemption, we are freed to pursue the way of blessing today with total abandon.
Perspective Makes All the Differenceby Mike Bergen | February 17, 2019
In Deuteronomy 9, we learn more from Moses’ example of what it means to live by God’s promises and not only by what we see in our personal problems and the circumstances around us. The perspective you choose makes all the difference!
Lesson from the Wildernessby Blaine Freidline | February 10, 2019
Just as He did with the Israelites, God allows you to experience serious need to turn you from everyday remedies to His words and promises. When you entrust yourself to Him and trust His words, you begin to experience life on His higher level.
A Likeable God?by John Vanderhorst | February 3, 2019
We can be at peace with God’s unfathomable ways in light of his unfathomable, disarming love at the cross of Christ.
Every Day, All Day Longby Johnny Vanderhorst | January 27, 2019
The Great Commandment provides a window into who God is, and the incredible nature of His intention for our lives.
The Fence of the Lawby Mike Bergen | January 20, 2019
The Ten Commands are a summary of God’s law. Some people think that being a Christian is all about obeying the law, but God has much more for us than that.
Fire for the Missionby Johnny Vanderhorst | January 13, 2019
"Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life."
God’s Trust-Building Exercisesby Mike Bergen | January 6, 2019
Deuteronomy is a long talk that Moses gave the people of Israel before going into an awesome new land that God had promised them more than 600 years previously. There would be huge giants to face and massive battles to fight, but God wanted the people to trust Him. In chapters 1-3, Moses gives reasons why God can be trusted and explains how their trust could grow stronger. These reasons and principles still apply to us today in our journey through life.
