God is seeking an encounter with us. Like the father off at a distance looking afar for his errant son to return, so our God is searching for the lost. In time God has begun to intercept man in his path to destruction so that He might spare and save.
Deuteronomy is a book that helps us see God’s extreme faithfulness for He is reaching out again to those that have spurned His word. Just as the professing Christian has been turned off by the church or fascinated with the world, so God seeks to call them back.
The purpose of Deuteronomy is to remind God’s people of His faithfulness and kindness so that they together embrace God’s future for them.
