Bible Verse Sunday #13

Today's verse is Deuteronomy 31:6:

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

The ESV Study Bible has this to say on the verse:

"Deut. 31:6 Be strong and courageous. This command to all Israel is also made directly to Joshua (vv. 7, 23; Josh. 1:6, 7, 9). Do not fear. See Deut. 1:28. He will not leave you or forsake you. In 1 Chron. 28:20, David applies this to Solomon; cf. Heb. 13:5."

Pretty sparse commentary today. Anyhow, at church today the pastor spoke about Jesus' various deeds, such as feeding the five thousand. From what I understood, he said that this story illustrates how Christians are to feed the world with the message of the gospel. In the High School service, the guest speaker spoke more about Paul's exploits in the book of Acts. Specifically, he talked about Paul in Athens, and how Paul shared the gospel with the Athenians.
