We seen yesterday God saying to Moses “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering, and have come down to rescue them.. ‘So now you go. I am sending you’ (Exodus 3:7)
Moses was really happy when God said that he was coming down to rescue his people, but sending Moses, that was an whole other story . Notice this: God’s answer is you! Moses was God’s answer to the suffering of his people in Egypt and you are the answer to the problem in your family. You are the answer to the drug problem in your city, to the alcohol problem, to the homeless, to the hurting and to the lost. You are the answer people starving in Africa, you are the answer kids locked up institutions in Eastern Europe. You are the answer!
It’s not that God is going to come down and fix everything in your life. God has already come down. He heard our cries and then 2000 years ago he sent his son down, to die on the cross, and now he turns to us, and says ‘I have saved you with my blood, now I have given you my authority, then go.
Matthew 28:18-20 ‘Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Now you go, and when we go, God comes with us. Moses going, was God coming down.
