Who Gets The Credit?
The opening lines of our text shares that the promise and provision of the Lord has come. They will inherit this land. Immediately after that, God explains that it has nothing to do with their righteousness but with the disobedience of the people in those current cities they are taking over. It also talks about them inheriting the land because God promised they would, not because of anything they did.
Lutherans love this kind of talk. This is what we call Law/Gospel at its finest. The law continually reminds us that we cannot live up to God’s expectations. In this case, it was a habitual behavior for them to try and take the credit, so it is reiterated over and over again that they deserve none of the credit for the land they are going to inherit.
