Life of Moses #1

Moses spent 40 years in the palace, 40 years as a shepherd, then 40 years leading the Jews out of Egypt. God's voice is still calling those who have ears to hear (Exo 3:1-22). Moses is unparalleled as "the man of God" (Deu 33:31). One of two greatest in the Old Testament, and history (along with Paul); they reflect Jesus Christ -- He said in Mat 5:5 the "meek shall inherit the Earth"; Moses is the meekest (Num 12:3-8). Introduction to Moses (Heb 11:23): a great life begins with faith; faith is essential to have great achievements (Dan 11:32); the cradle of faith is the family; it's the nature of faith to risk everything; faith is exercised defying evil; the prize faith seeks is death (to old life - Rom 6:4); Moses parents were risk takers - the nature of faith (Phi 2:25-30); faith sees through God's eyes; Moses was refined and cultured; faith conquers fear (Heb 2:14-15); faith gives ordinary people extraordinary faith; faith motivates you to deny worldly pleasure (Heb 11:24-25). Moses faith impacted Israel (Heb 11:23-29).
