Moses urged the greatness, glory, and goodness of God. Let us beheld to our duty by the bonds of love, and prevail with by the mercies of God and cleave to Him. The fear of the Lord that is wisdom.-Matthew Henry's Commentary-
Through all of the Israelites journey they still didn't get it. You read through their journey through the wilderness and all of God's provision,yet they still desired the old way of life.It's funny how through all these years not much has changed in the human heart. We accept Christ into our hearts, call ourselves "Christian" yet we continue to live as though we don't know Him, or we desire to live as we did before knowing Him. What is making us different, what did we get rid of so that we would be different, was there a REAL change? Let's be honest, there are times when we desire to go back to the old way of life because sin is fun. If sin wasn't fun we would have no desire to do it, but it is.
Why did you/I make this decision to follow Christ? Was it out of emotion or was it more then that? I'll tell you this, it better be more then just to get a get out of hell card, if that is all we are living for we, as the Israelites are missing it as well. We must live as Christ, love as Christ, be an example as Christ was to the best of our ability. We have to be different, and be the difference in this world.
