Our sermon series from Deuteronomy continued this past Sunday, March 1 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC. Over the last few weeks, we have seen that when you love, you want to give and when you love you want to protect.
This Sunday we observed that when you love, you want to prove. Deuteronomy 13:1-4 outlines potential events that may occur concerning a prophet’s dreams and visions. Yet God’s People must be able to discern what is truly a message from God.
The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 13:3
A test is a blessing: For example, how could we trust medicines to heal us but for the intensive testing each drug undergoes? The Lord tests His People, so we know what we can handle. Then we can cry out and ask God to fill us where we’re deficient. Hear the whole sermon here.
