Our senior pastor moved on to Deuteronomy 33 this past Sunday, March 26 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC. For the last few weeks, he’s preached through Moses’ song in chapter 32, and now we see Moses’ last words of blessing in chapter 33. Like John Wesley’s last words, “The best of all is: God is with us,” Moses also wants to bless God’s people with his last words. Truth comes with blessing and blessing always must come with truth, as we saw from Moses’ stark words and images in chapter 32. His telling the truth about the sin nature of God’s people wounds them, and then his last words of blessing bring the salve needed to heal those wounds. In the same way, we must not blast more effectively than we bless. Truth and blessing must always be together. The heart of the Lord is to bless his people so we can be a blessing to others. Though we don’t know what our last words will be, our everyday words should be full of blessing and truth. Listen to the whole sermon here.
