Please read Deuteronomy 10-12. I know this is all a review, but I am loving it! Moses wants the people to know who they are and Whose they are as they enter the promised land.
“So now Israel, what do you think God expects from you? Just this: Live in His presence in holy reverence, follow the road He sets out for you, love him, serve God, your God, with everything you have in you, obey the commandments and regulations of God that I’m commanding you today—live a good life” (10:12-13 MSG)
Deut 10:12-13 says to live in God’s holy presence (I think purposefully). Cut away the callouses from our heart. Don’t harden against the Lord. Don’t let anything desensitize you to His Holy Spirit. What do you think God expects from you? Live a good life!
“Ruthlessly demolish all the sacred shrines” (12:2 MSG)
12:1-3 talks about ruthlessly tearing down shrines. our application is to ruthlessly cut out anything that threatens to take the place and priority that God should have in our lives. Keep first things first. These are actions we must take every day! Be diligent and zealous to be obedient and live in God’s holy presence – be holy because He is holy. These are actions WE must take – not things which God does for us. Don’t let anything take His place!
