“And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you?  He requires only that you fear the LORD your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul.  And you must always obey the LORD’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.”  (Deuteronomy 10:12-13, NLT)

God’s expectations of His people are not obscure. They are stated plainly and repeatedly.

God’s expectations of His people are not difficult.  It does not require one to be a “super saint” to reverence (fear) our God; to live in a way that pleases Him; to love Him; and to serve Him with all our being.

All that God requires of us is well within our grasp.  – Luther
