What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him?

– Deuteronomy 4:7 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Moses is making the case to the nation of Israel that it is important to follow the decrees of God. One of his first points is the faithfulness of God to answer prayer. This point is even more relevant to Christians, for Christ is known as Emmanuel, or God is with us. Jesus is near to all who call upon His name in prayer. He is ready to answer when we repent and turn from our ways to follow him. What other god is like that? None.
