Title: Climbing Mount Nebo: Making sure we pass on the faith.

Text: Deuteronomy 6:20-25 Deuteronomy 32:48-52, Deuteronomy, 34:1-4, 10-12
Focus: Moses did not experience the reality of crossing into the Promised Land. Yet in the midst of detoured dreams, God offers visions of the ultimate destination. Our challenge is to make sure that we pass on the vision and values to the next generation.

I.  50-year anniversary of King’s “I’ve been to the mountaintop”
“I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we,
as a people, will get to the Promised Land”

II. Moses’ unfulfilled dream
A vision of a land flowing with “milk and honey” (Exodus 3:8)
A voice given at a burning bush
Making a mistake that shuts Moses out of a fulfilling the dream (Numbers 20)
Working so hard and never seeing it to completion
A Pattern found in the Bible
A promise offered/ a covenant defined/ a goal in sight/ a struggle for fulfillment
The Grace of vision: the view from Mount Nebo
“his sight was unimpaired and his vigor not abated” (Deuteronomy 34:7)

III. Embracing new vantage points when dreams go unfulfilled
The journey, not the destination, is the main event
Paying attention to the path
Reexamine open doors that were previously ignored
Opportunities that were missed by our focus on a singular dream
God never promised that we won’t relinquish anything in this life
Yet God promised that nothing separates us from His Love (Romans 8:37)

IV. The Challenge to remember and to pass on the faith
