This is the sermon video and outline presented at the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference, St. Paul, MN in August of 1994. The sermon explores the theme text of the Conference week by thinking about the legacy Moses was calling the people of Israel to build.
- Text: Deuteronomy 30:11-20
- Primary: Deuteronomy 30:17-18
- Secondary: Deuteronomy 30:19-20
Sometimes, we think about our legacy.
Moses called the people of God together to leave his legacy in words. As he did this, he called the people of Israel to choose to leave a legacy of life.
Knowing that it isn’t always easy to see from just one perspective, he provided them a legacy sandwich: here is the right way to build a legacy, here is the wrong way, and again here is the right way. [Read Deuteronomy 30:15-20]
Tonight, I’d like us to consider the wrong way to leave a legacy. You see, Moses provided this description of the wrong way to serve as a warning to Israel. While there are a variety of ways to break the warning into pieces—I do see five warning signs.
