Deuteronomy 31-34 – The Unsung National Anthem

Your team song

Moses’ song – Deut 32
The greatness of God

The failure of Israel
– v 15 … they abandoned the God who made them and rejected their saviour

The terrible consequences
– v 19ff

God’s compassion
– v 36
– v 43 … will atone for the sins of those who return to God

What is the purpose of this song?
– Deut 31:19-22
– Don’t blame God
– Deut 32:1… calls Israel to account.
– Deut 32:2… new growth in the lives of God’s people when they return to him

For us today?
Deut 32:46-47- to be taken to heart and obeyed, not just idle words
Unchanged God
Unchanged people
OT the people of God = the nation of Israel
NT the people of God = the Christian church.

The dangers we face?
We can grow fat as a church.
– Comfortable, secure, nice, insular…
– Where is your real security in life?
– Is Jesus a cultural accessory?
– How costly is following Jesus in your life?

Return to God
– Come back to God
– Don’t blame God
– God has made atonement for your sin

… so approach the throne of grace with confidence.

Deut 32:47… They are not just idle words for you – they are your life!
