Moses Is Called
April 29 , 2018 – James Roberson
Moses encounters God in the burning bush. God had seen the oppression of slaves in Egypt; He had heard their cries of injustice; and He has known their pain. God also calls us to do something about the injustice around us. God sees, hears and knows the suffering of others. He sends us to provide healing and provision.

Jesus and the earliest Christians saw in the story of the Exodus a picture of what God was doing for the whole human race. It’s not just that people 3,300 years ago were slaves in Egypt. As God intervened in history to save the Israelites from bondage, so, we believe, God intervened in history once more to save and redeem the human race — to save us from our lostness, brokenness, and fears. And he saves us from guilt, sin, and death.
God Behind The Scenes
May 13 , 2018 – James Roberson
God is not mentioned anywhere in this entire story in Exodus 2, yet He was still at work. God worked through heroic midwives, through Moses’ courageous mother, and through a compassionate princess who listened to her heart and not her head. God works in ordinary ways, through seemingly ordinary people who pay attention, who listen for His nudges on their hearts. People who don’t give into their fears but seek to do the right thing regardless of the cost.
