Choose Life

A guide to our 10am series in Deuteronomy

In our 10am services at the moment, we are exploring the book of Deuteronomy. This is the place to come for everything to do with the series: what’s already happened, what’s coming up and all the supporting materials!

The series so far...

1. Choose to Remember

Deuteronomy 1:1-8, 29-33; 2:7 (April 15)

As they stand on the brink of a new life that God is leading them into, God’s people are encouraged to remember all He has done for them, and to root themselves in His faithfulness and goodness. Will we do the same?

Coming up on Sundays...

2. Choose to Obey

Deuteronomy 4:1-9 (April 22)

Before the people are reminded of the contents of the Law, they are posed with a choice: will they live theire lives in obedience to whatever God will say? It is a challenge, and a question we must ask of ourselves too.

3. Choose to Love

Deuteronomy 6:1-9 (April 29)

At the heart of the call on God’s people is the call to love God with everything they are and everything they do. It was a rallying cry to them, and is to us also. So how will we constantly remind ourselves and one another of this call?

4. Choose God’s Ways

Deuteronomy 10:12-22 (May 6)

More than just a list of rules and instructions, God’s Law is about sharing His heart with us so that we might be shaped by what motivates Him. In this passage, we hear of God’s heart for justice, so will we let Him form that in us?

5. Choose to Worship

Deuteronomy 12:1-14 (May 13)

The Law section of Deuteronomy now begins, and there is a call to God’s people to seek Him and worship Him in ways that are right and that He has asked them to. So what might this say for our lives of worship as we gather and as we scatter?

May 20 - week off series for Pentecost Sunday

During the two weeks between May 13 and May 27, we will dive deeper into the large law section of Deuteronomy through a lecture evening on May 14 (book here!) and a series of online articles, so check here for the details!

6. Choose Blessing

Deuteronomy 28:1-68 (May 27)

God’s people are presented with a choice. A life of obedience and dedication that is accompanied by blessing, or one of rebellion which is not. It is a difficult passage and we need to handle it carefully, but what might it mean for us to choose blessing today?

7. Choose Life!

Deuteronomy 30:11-20; 31:9-13 (June 3)

As we bring our series to an end, we present ourselves with the same choice that God’s people had as they overlooked the promised land. Will we take all that God has spoken to us seriously and dwell deeply in it, or will we reject it and wander in our own direction. It needs to be a deliberate choice: choose life!
