He was 120 years old and had a lot to say. In a 26-chapter sermon at the end of his life, Moses preached to the Israelites about remembering the Lord their God and teaching His ways to their children. And for the first time, he told them not only to obey the Lord but to love Him with all their heart, soul, and strength. It seems like a no-brainer. You can choose curses or blessings.You can choose death or life. It’s up to you. But can it possibly be that easy? Curses and death have an obvious downside, but what about blessings and life? Is there a catch? The desert years began and ended with a song. The first thing Moses did after leading the Israelites across the Red Sea on dry land was to sing a song. And 40 years later at the border of Canaan, days before he died, Moses again sang a song. It’s one of the greatest epitaphs in history: “No prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face.” After barely escaping death as an infant, Moses became a grandson of the king, a rebel, a murderer, a deliverer, a lawgiver, a transgressor. But the heart of the story is that he knew God face to face.
