In Moses’s final sermon before the children of Israel enter the promise land, the Law of God is given to them for their own good. An important point is that Jesus loves the book of Deuteronomy and quoted it more than any other book. As Christ liberates us from our own sin and wickedness, the Exodus was a liberation for Israel from the bondage of Egyptian slavery. To know God is to love God and to love God is obey Him. We should be obedient because of this love, and for our own good.
