This coming Lord’s Day, we will continue our march through the book of Hebrews (specifically Hebrews 11:23-28) by looking at Moses’ faith. There are a few things that stand out from a mere cursory reading of the text:
1) Faith is fearless. Both Moses’ parents and Moses himself were fearless when it came to the ruler of the land of Egypt. What’s amazing about being fearless is that typically there is something greater that is feared. In this case, Moses endured by a big picture of an invisible God. Catch that? Something that couldn’t be seen with human eyes made Moses live a certain way in today.
2) Faith is active. In each episode of Moses’ life, we see someone who has faith in God alone, but it is not a faith that is alone. It’s a faith that displays itself in action. And, for every action that comes out of the story of his life, we are given a reason for why that action is pursued (which helps us as we seek to live out active faith).
In light of this, then, I encourage you to join us this coming Sunday, 6/3/12, as we explore the active, fearless faith of Moses so that we might be a people who glorify and enjoy God, forever.
