FROM THE PULPIT: Cast out your life’s hindrances

Published: Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 04:30 PM.

Moses did not get to see the Promised Land because he disobeyed God by not speaking to the mountain.

What do we learn from this? Obeying God in small and big matters will bring blessings.

•Flee from idol worship.

Deuteronomy 4:23 says, "Take heed to yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of the Lord your God which He made with you, and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of anything which the Lord your God has forbidden you."

•Do what is right and good to possess the land and your enemies will be cast down.

Deuteronomy 6:18-19 says, "And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land of which the Lord swore to your fathers, to cast out all your enemies from before you, as the Lord has spoken."

You must first remove the mess before you begin to possess the land. Don't you clean your home before you occupy it? Throw away other kinds of trash to usher in God’s blessings.
