Study 84 – Psalm 106:34-48
1. The first failure of the new nation of Israel was to allow the occupying nations to remain a force. This led to intermarriage which led to adopting foreign customs and gods. As Christians we need to make sure that we do not have friendship with the world and above all must make sure that we do not intermarry with people outside of the faith. There must be a separation. The Christian must be holy – separate.
2. “He took note of their distress when he heard their cry for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of his great love he relented.” This is the key verse to sum up the tremendous love of God that outweighs the tremendous rebellion on the part of Israel and us as well.
