Not by Bread Alone

We’re looking at the book of Deuteronomy, which we have said is a series of sermons preached by Moses just before he died. The subject is: “Having experienced the salvation and grace of God, how should we then live? How should that concretely affect and shape the way we live?” It’s a very practical book, and no passage is more practical than today’s, because here we have some insights about how you handle suffering and pain and grief and difficulty. There’s nothing more practical than that.

We learn three things from the text. First, we can’t survive in the wilderness. Secondly, we can’t survive without the wilderness. Thirdly, therefore, we only have one hope.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on June 17, 2007. Series “Deuteronomy – Doing Justice, Preaching Grace”. Scripture: Deuteronomy 8:1-16.
