The Life of Moses
Many leaders experience the temptation to consider themselves as indispensable to those they lead, but as Moses’ demonstrates, effective and long-lasting leadership demands wisdom and community.
The story of Moses’ extraordinary life and death offers an opportunity to see God’s hand throughout his life in incredible ways, but it also offers us hope in something far greater than this unique servant of God.
The heart of Christianity is a love for God. Without a love for God, we have missed the whole of the gospel in our lives.
A few sound words of commitment to God do not prove a heart commitment to God. Balaam’s life and actions demonstrate that if we set our heart on sinful pursuits, we cannot avoid enticing others to sin.
Our sins are killing us. We must look to Jesus in faith in order to live! This daily consecration to the Lord places us in a position to receive God’s gracious provision.
The very same hardships that God designs to grow our faith can also destroy our faith when we grow frustrated. Frustration places us in great spiritual danger because it destroys our faith in God and tempts us into unbelief. But our unbelief dishonors God and disconnects us from His divine blessing.
The most dangerous place to take a stand is in the soil of rebellion.
God never makes a promise that He fails to fulfill. But without a strong faith, we will miss God’s reward.
