We have been looking at a Psalm of Moses over the past few weeks.
He is the man who got the Ten Commandments that no one has been
able to keep--including Moses!  I wonder what it was like for the 
Israelites when Moses explained things?

“God says you have to obey all of these laws exactly!” 
“No excuses!”
“You better get it right the first time because you don’t get a second
“If you fail to keep the whole law, God will be angry with you.”

The penalty for NOT keeping all of the Commandments was death--
unless there was a blood sacrifice, but the blood of animals did not blot 
out the sin, only covered it. No one knew for sure if he would be accepted
by God and whether they had done enough to win His pleasure. What a 

I hear Christians today wondering if they have done enough to please God. 
Has nothing changed?
