The Life of Moses (Page 2)
How quickly our heart can turn from praise and thanksgiving to grumbling and complaining! God always takes notice because our murmuring robs Him of the worship that He deserves.
Nothing is worth pursuing if we know that we will leave God behind us in order to chase after it. Nothing is worth avoiding if we know that God will be with us as we follow Him.
God always sees our idolatry. When we worship idols, we give ourselves over to all manner of unrighteousness. Our only protection against evil is the One true God who is righteous, holy and good.
No one can know the utter darkness of humanity until they see the awesome holiness of God.
God’s purpose for our deliverance always expands beyond the deliverance itself. God rescues us from sin us so that we would become worshippers.
God’s purpose in redeeming His people from bondage is worship. If you are redeemed by God through Jesus Christ, God’s purpose is to transform you into a worshipper.
God delivers His people from bondage by grace through a blood sacrifice. But His primary focus in His redemption is freedom from the spiritual bondage of our own sin, not liberation from external oppression.
Yahweh is a God of dominance. He suffers no challengers to His supremacy, and He demonstrated the futility of those challengers when Moses faced off against Pharaoh in Exodus 5-10.
