The Word Is Very Near to You

Deuteronomy 30.9-14; Luke 10.25-37 (Proper 10C)

Surely, this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away. No, the word is very near to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe.

These words spoken by Moses according to the Book of Deuteronomy have never sounded so appropriate and timely as they do today. “God’s word is very close to us; it is in our mouths and in our hearts for us to observe.”
