Why Me? Because He Loves Me!

Hear, Israel: You are now about to cross the Jordan to go in and dispossess nations greater and stronger than you, with large cities that have walls up to the sky. 2 The people are strong and tall—Anakites! You know about them and have heard it said: “Who can stand up against the Anakites?” 3 But be assured today that the Lord your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the Lord has promised you. Deuteronomy 9:1-3

Why me? Why would God destroy nations to give the Promised Land to his people? We like to think it is a good guy/bad guy thing. Read this whole chapter. You will find God calling the Canaanites corrupt, but he also goes on how bad the Israelites are. We have too much accusing today of people being bad—we all deserve God’s punishment. In Jesus we find another solution of God’s—to pour out his grace on ALL people and unite us at the foot of the cross.
