Choose Life

God has established his covenant with Israel and now, at the end of Deuteronomy, Moses recapitulates its conditions: blessings and life for obedience, curses and death for disobedience. The command presented to Israel, to “choose life”, seems an obvious one – except the choice is an impossible one.  In this sermon, Pastor Matt explains the significance of Deuteronomy 29:4, the sobering truth of our radical depravity, and expounds the beautiful promise of the new covenant found in Deuteronomy 30 where one day, God himself would give his people a new heart.
