Jeremiah 31:1-17, 23-34
Bible Verse for Memorizing
Whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. (James 2:10)
Small Catechism for Memorizing - The Close of the Ten Commandments
What does God say about all these commandments? He says: “I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments.” (Exodus 20:5-6)
What does this mean? God threatens to punish all who break these commandments. Therefore, we should fear His wrath and not do anything against them. But He promises grace and every blessing to all who keep these commandments. Therefore, we should also love and trust in Him and gladly do what He commands.
