Moses was in the final stretch, but that didn’t slow him down one bit. From the moment he learned he wasn’t going into the Promised Land, Moses started praying for the next man up. He asked God for a man “who will guide them wherever they go and lead them into battle, so thecommunity of the Lord will not be like a sheep without a shepherd” (Numbers 27:17 NLT). That man was Joshua, and Moses worked to make the transition smooth. The last four chapters of Deuteronomy trace the activities that occupied Moses in the closing days of his life. He gathered Israel to say goodbye. He designated Joshua as God’s clear choice to be his successor. He established public reading of the Law. And he assembled the elders from every tribe to hold them accountable for leading faithfully. The book of Deuteronomy is a series of sermons Moses gave to prepare the people for life in the Promised Land. In this last session of our four-part series, Choose Life, we focus on faith, choices, and finishing well.
