The Book of Deuteronomy: He Brought us Out to Bring us In!
There is a wonderful analogy in the Old Testament comparing Israel and there experiences to the Christian Life. For example when Israel was enslaved to the Egyptians in the book of Exodus, God uses their slavery as a picture of humanities bondage to sin. And just as Israel put their faith in the blood of an innocent spotless lamb for their deliverance, we too exercise faith in The Lamb, the LORD Jesus Christ, for salvation. God says in Deuteronomy 6:23 that He saved Israel from the Egyptians to bring them into a new land, a land of rest.
In our series in the Book of Deuteronomy, we continue to look at this picture as God prepares a new generation of people to inhabit this land of rest, a land which the previous generation failed to enter because of unbelief.
