Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel. Malachi 4:4
Laws are always put in place for a reason. Every law has one of two purposes in its being enacted. One is to prevent someone from doing something, the other is to get someone to do something.
Most people accept the laws that have been given them and do not fight against them. In every group there are some who fight or ignore the laws, doing what they want. There are consequences to obeying and not obeying the laws that were given.
As God finishes the Old Testament, He reminds the people to remember the laws Moses had given.
At the point God had made this statement, He was going to become silent for about 400 years, until Jesus arrives on the scene. He wanted the people to remember the Law. This law was to guide them in how He wanted them to live their lives.

People are often quick to forget important things that they do not see as important. One of the greatest things a person must know is how to live for God. The believer in God will want to know what God expects of Him. God never left His people without some guidance.
However, for that guidance to be of any value, one must remember what it is and then apply it to his life. Every believer needs to live by God’s standards of living. Ignoring His laws will bring about death, following them will bring about an abundant life.
If you do not know the laws of God, you must take time to read the Bible to become familiar with them. As you do this, do not allow yourself how God has told you to live your life.
Obeying the laws of God will not save you, only believing in Jesus can do that. The obedience is accepting what Jesus has done and then living for God in gratefulness for what He did.
Do not allow yourself to forget or put aside God’s guidance and laws on how to live. It will only bring about death. Remember and live.
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know and understand God’s commands; that you will obey God’s law for you; and that you will know the abundant life God has for you.
