Our Current Study

Make It Count: Move Past Your Past and Live With Purpose Today, A Study of the Book of Deuteronomy

An seven-week study in the First 5 mobile app starting January 9.

Yesterday’s mistakes don’t have to steal from your tomorrows.

Sometimes it seems like the past comes back to haunt us. Whether it’s choices we made or things that happened to us, the cycle of shame can leave us feeling stuck and unable to move forward.

But what if we are missing what God has in store for us because we’re too busy looking backward?

The Israelites found themselves in a similar situation. On their way to the promised land, they got stranded in the wilderness, longing for what they had in Egypt. It seemed easier to cling to what they knew from a life of slavery instead of looking to the unknown ahead. But God had a purpose for their future. And He needed them to move on from what they had left behind first.

This study of Deuteronomy will help us see our past through the eyes of God’s inexhaustible mercy and faithfulness so we can embrace what He has for us right now. God is a God of second chances — He could have given up on Israel in their disobedience, but He didn’t. And He doesn’t give up on us either.
