Message for May 18 - When God Chooses You

It felt so good to be in church last Sunday as we worshiped together and honored our mothers.  Priscilla poured her heart into the Sunday school lesson as always and Pastor David encouraged us to appreciate the women in our church.

This Sunday Linda and I are honored to share with you again.  Linda will have an inspiring lesson and I am going back to the deliverer series and picking up with Moses.  We will see how he pictured Jesus and how much we can learn from his life.

In Exodus 3:7-10 God tells Moses what He wants him to do.  Have you ever been asked to do something you didn’t think you could?  Have you ever felt that what God wants from you is more than you can handle?  Did you know that Moses felt that way too?  Remember a couple of months ago when we talked about all his objections when God spoke to him from the burning bush.  Yet God chose him anyway and wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.

What made Moses special?  Why did God choose an outcast, hot-tempered murderer who couldn’t speak well and lacked confidence to be the deliverer of Israel?  If Moses had anything at all to do with it I think we can find some reasons why, and we’ll talk about them.  But the indisputable fact is that God chose Moses.  That makes everything else secondary.

I want you to see that if you belong to God, he has already chosen you!  It may not be for such a grand task, though we should remember that God doesn’t measure things the way we do.  Great will your reward in Heaven be if you will submit to Him and let Him work through you.  Come and join us as we study and worship together!
