The Chorus of Grace, Pastor Adam Kohlstrom

“If the Bible makes no other point, it shouts this one: God loves us! His love had no beginning and is incredibly patient. All we need to do is respond, not try to earn what is freely offered. God has said in many ways, “I love you!”  I have demonstrated that love to you by all I’ve done for you. I have even sacrificed my Son, Jesus, to pay the price for what is unacceptable about you – your sin. Now, live because of my love. Respond to me: love me with your whole being: give yourself to me in thanksgiving, not as payment. Live life fully, in the freedom of knowing you are loved.”

 Deuteronomy 29-30


Deut. 29:18-19. How are you today susceptible to the “poisonous and bitter fruit” described here? How do we avoid such fruit (cf. Hebrews 3:12-13)?


Deuteronomy 29:16-18 (cf. Joshua 24:14, 23). What ‘gods’ are we tempted to serve today? In what subtle ways might we be tempted to serve them? What steps can we take to “yield” ourselves daily to the true God?


Deuteronomy 29:20-21 (cf. Joshua 24:19-20). Can you share a time you were jealous? How is our human jealousy (Prov. 6:34; Acts 13:45; 17:5; Gal. 5:19-21) different from God’s just jealousy (Ex. 20:5; 34:14; 2Cor. 11:2)?


Deuteronomy 30:2. What does it look like to “return to the Lord your God”? How often do you think we must return to Him (Luke 9:23; Lament. 3:22-24)? Can you share a story of returning to the Lord from your own life?


Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (cf. Joshua 24:15). From your own experience, why do you think a “one time” choice is not sufficient? What does it look like in your own life to make a daily choice to love and obey the LORD (cf. Luke 9:23)?


Deuteronomy 30:6; 10:16. In the Scripture, “circumcision of the heart” is equated with no longer being stubborn (29:18-19) and becoming unresponsive to the Lord (Jer. 6:10; Isa. 63:10; Acts 7:51).


• According to Hebrews 3:7-19; 4:6-10 (cf. Psalm 95:7-11), how did the previous generation demonstrate that they were “uncircumcised of heart”?


• According to Romans 2:28-29, what does God desire of His people? How does the death of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit accomplish this desire (Colossians 2:11-14; Galatians 5:1-6,16-25)?


• How is the Lord currently at work in your heart making you more responsive to Him? When are you most likely to struggle with stubbornness? What in your heart does the Spirit need to “cut away”?
