FROM THE PULPIT: Hear God’s call, follow him

Published: Thursday, September 26, 2013 at 05:22 PM.

Last week’s column left off with the excuses Moses gave when God gave him a mission.

God persisted; he wanted Moses to be his representative in Egypt — and Moses gave another excuse.

 “God, I am a wanted criminal back in Egypt,” Moses said. “Shoot, they will catch me and cut off my head if I go back there!” 

“No they won’t,” God said. “I’ll protect you. Don’t worry about it. Everything will turn out just fine.”

“How can you protect me against those Egyptians?” Moses asked — not realizing he requested a challenge.

“Moses, take your hand and stick it inside your robe,” God said.

Moses did so.
