Before we get to the topic…

Interesting

Funny

Strange

Sad

slide6

Deuteronomy 21

10 When you go to war against your enemies and the Lord your God delivers them into your hands and you take captives, 11 if you notice among the captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife.

slide7

Scripture reminds us that…

Nothing has changed

Other laws also tell us that nothing has changed…

Sadly, they confirm how sinful and ugly we have always been

slide8

Deuteronomy 22

22 If a man is found sleeping with another man’s wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel.

30 A man is not to marry his father’s wife; he must not dishonor his father’s bed.

slide9

This, you might find shocking…

When their kids gave parents trouble, they had the option of having them stoned

They just had to show just cause

slide10

Deuteronomy 21

18 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town.

slide11

20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.

slide12

The topic for today

Worship

Entering the assembly

Expectations

slide13

Deuteronomy 23

No one who has been emasculated by crushing or cutting may enter the assembly of the Lord. 2 No one born of a forbidden marriage nor any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the Lord, even down to the tenth generation.

slide14

3 No Ammonite or Moabite or any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the Lord, even down to the tenth generation.

slide15

7 Do not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother. Do not abhor an Egyptian, because you lived as an alien in his country. 8 The third generation of children born to them may enter the assembly of the Lord.

slide16

Women

Foreigners

Even Jews who were disobedient…

Could not enter the assembly

slide17

There was an understanding that you had to earn the right to be in the assembly

You had to be good enough

You had to be an insider

slide18

Deuteronomy 26

18 And the Lord has declared this day that you are his people, his treasured possession as he promised, and that you are to keep all his commands.

slide19

Deuteronomy 28

If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

slide20

3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. 4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. 5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. 6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

slide21

45 All these curses will come upon you. They will pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the Lord your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you.

slide22

The assembly is for Jews in good standing

My concern…

We often live in the Old Testament model of worship

We fear the God of the Old Testament

We are under a new covenant

slide23

John 6

39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

slide24

Romans 8

31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?

slide25

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

slide26

God’s love…

Is not dependent on our actions

Is firmly rooted at the cross

Behavior is important but does not bring salvation

Salvation is about the relationship we have with Jesus

slide27

Ephesians 2

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

slide28

Romans 7

15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.

slide29

Romans 7

21 So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me.

24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!

slide30

Wretched

Broken

Sinful

Disobedient

But welcomed

slide31

Putting all together

Many of us fear the God of the old covenant

I want you to fall in love with the God of the new covenant

Christ, opens doors through his sacrifice on the cross

slide32

Putting all together

Coming to the assembly – to church is a great privilege

Come when life is great and things look good for you

Come when life is broken, sinful, disobedient and God feels far away

slide33

Putting all together

We are welcomed into God’s presence

Sometimes, as pastors, we make people feel like they are not worthy

Jesus died to open doors not to shut them

slide34

John 3:17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
