    One of the heaviest chapters in the whole Bible. Serving other deities, graven images of wood and stone, and being destroyed as a people.
  • Felicia
    It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God Heb 10:13. Thank you Lord Jesus for coming to save us for the latter part of Deu 28 is fearful indeed Verse 47 indicates that it is not enough for us to serve God but the manner of service is even more critical. We are saved to serve and we must serve joyfully and with all our hearts. I pray Lord that we will take God's seriously Amen

    Hi Bruce; If that's how it was for you, I rejoice with you. My experience went somewhat different however from yours; but I know that there was joy in the presence of the angels over this sinner that repented! I haven't kept any day for a memorial, or as special; and I stay away generally from holidays or religious tokens; but have my religion in practical application of the Spirit led life.
