ALL NEW SERMONS - ALL NEW SERMONS "Moses: Avoidance, Confidence, Dependence" - Exodus 4 & Numbers 20-21 (March 1 2020 - First Sunday in Lent)
ALL NEW SERMONS AS OF FEBRUARY 23. Today is the First Sunday in Lent. Lent is the period of self-examination and repentance in spiritual preparation for the death and resurrection of Christ marked by Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter Sunday. Tbis Lenten series focuses on specific characters of the Bible. Today is MOSES.
We explore the texts of Exodus 4, Numbers 20 and Numbers 21 about Moses and the burning bush, Moses and the water flowing form the rock and Moses and the bronze serpent. Each of these episodes in the life of Moses tell us something about Moses and his relationship with God. They tell us more, however, about God His patience, mercy and fidelity in bringing inept and inadequate people into lives of grace and mercy toward others. for all practical purposes Moses' life and calling is no different than those of any Christian. Find how much we are alike, but also how much God is for us.
