The long journey from Egypt to the Land of Canaan lasted forty years, and the generation that was brought by God’s power out of Egypt died in the wilderness. The new generation stood on the threshold of the Promised Land where Moses spoke words of comfort, warning and encouragement. These great declarations of God’s purpose with His people have been preserved in the fifth book of the Bible, Deuteronomy. The generation that is now waiting to enter the kingdom when the Lord Jesus returns can learn much from Moses’ exhortation. It is a message about the holiness of God and the relationship He seeks with men and women of faith.
