I’m glad I live on this side of the cross.
On this side, Jesus has already come down in the flesh. He’s already finished the work God wanted Him to do.
And we can know all about it.
But when Moses was speaking to the Israelites as we read in Deuteronomy 30, they didn’t yet know about Jesus like we do. When Moses asked the question, “Who will ascend to heaven for us and bring it to us?” they likely remembered seeing Moses ascend to Mount Sinai to meet God. And seeing him come back down with the tablets of stone, the 10 Commandments, etched with God’s signature.
“It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend to heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?'”
As we memorize and study this verse next week, put yourself in their shoes as they were listening about the law.
And then thank God for the shoes you’re in now, recipients of the gospel of grace.
Grace has come down to us.
