Deuteronomy 7:1-8:20; Key Verse: Dt 8:2-3
"Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna...to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord."
Theme: God tests his people in various ways so that they may truly know what is in their heart and whether or not they love him (Dt 6:4-5). Spiritual commitment of those saved by grace must be expressed in actions that accord with the will of God.
