The last several weeks at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, we’ve seen the character of God displayed in our Deuteronomy series through his provision of refuge cities. We’ve seen how God provides protection not just for our physical bodies but also for our souls, as we find refuge when we are closely related to Christ and one another.
On Sunday, August 16 our senior pastor preached Deuteronomy 19:11-13, showing us that cities of refuge are not for everyone. The man described in those verses sowed thoughts of hate and reaped plans of murder. The cities of refuge teach us about the Gospel, and the Gospel is the act of God’s justice. That’s why Jesus’ death on the cross is so horrific. The Gospel is the justice of God being satisfied in Jesus. Listen to the whole sermon here.
