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

“Now take it out,” God said.

Moses’ hand was covered with leprosy. Can’t you imagine him thinking, “What am I supposed to do now? I can’t eat properly, I can’t drink properly. I can’t even see my wife and children anymore!” 

God said, “I will show you my power. Stick your hand back into your robe.” 

Moses put his hand back into his robe and took it out again; it had returned to normal. Moses was struck speechless.

Then, God asked Moses to throw his shepherd’s staff the ground.

Can you just imagine Moses thinking, “This staff is the only thing I can call my own, and you want me to throw it down? Please don’t take this away from me.”

Still, Moses threw the staff on the ground, and the rod turned into a hissing snake.
