Being a Responsible Christian

Hebrews 11:23-29

The Lord called Moses to a specific task, gave him the authority to carry it out, and promised His unwavering presence. The Israelite leader proved responsible, carrying out the plan in dependence upon God.

Moses had strong faith. He doubted his own abilities but trusted in the Lord. We also need faith that’s confident, courageous, and committed. Our confidence is to come from the knowledge that God is true to His character and promises. Our courage is drawn from the Holy Spirit, who strengthens us. And our commitment grows as we focus on Jesus, who faced great adversity in order to save us.

God prepared Moses for the work through many life experiences. First, he was born to Hebrew parents who were slaves in Egypt—as a result, he identified closely with those God wanted him to lead. Next, he was adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter, so he knew Egyptian customs and language. He also understood how to conduct himself in the palace; therefore, when God commanded him to approach Pharaoh, he was returning to a familiar place. Finally, from his upbringing in the king’s court, Moses knew prosperity, but he also experienced seasons of want as a shepherd in a foreign land. In this way, he was could relate to both Pharaoh and the slaves he was sent to free. All of these aspects of his life helped ready him for becoming God’s servant-leader.

The Lord will utilize the events of our lives and grow our faith to equip us for serving Him. Ask God to reveal ways that your background can help you to further His kingdom.
