Moses told the people that the Levites were going to give the consequences of the law if broken. He also told them that they were to give a response: “…and all the people shall answer and say amen.”
Having the people respond accomplished two things:
1) it caused them to pay attention to what was being said.
2) it took away the opportunity to say that they were ignorant to the law.
God is looking for us to respond to His Word. He is looking for us to put effort into listening to what He has to say. He wants us to focus on Him so that we won’t naively be led astray. He wants a response of “amen”….”I’ll do it, Lord”….”I accept and will abide by your Word.”
What kind of response do you give Him? Is it one of affirmation or is it nonchalant and uncaring? Choose to respond in a way that will draw you closer to Jesus and bring glory to God.
