Life of Moses #10

Redemption in the Passover: Lamb is chosen on the 10th day and sacrificed on the 14th, and the blood painted on the door. Just as the sacrifice of lamb at Passover saved the family from destruction, so the Lamb of God sacrificed on the cross our souls (Joh 1:29, 1Co 5:7, 2Co 5:21). God is satisfied with Jesus Christ's sacrifice (Rom 3:25, 1Jo 2:2, 1Jo 4:10). Every human must make a choice about Jesus Christ (Act 16:31, Joh 3:18, Joh 8:36). Moses believed God's promises and they became the foundation of his faith (Exo 3:8, Exo 3:12, Exo 3:17, Exo 3:21, Heb 11:28). What Moses heard and believed he acted on (Exo 4:18-20, Jam 1:22, Exo 5:1, Heb 6:12). Faith of Moses was contagious (2Ti 2:2, Exo 4:31, Exo 12:28). One person's faith will often turn the tide of history (1Sa 17:52); David was a good example. Moses faith was vindicated (Mat 9:29, Exo 12:29-36, Gal 6:9). In the duration of the plagues, Moses grew spiritually - God gave them grace - Moses did something with it (Exo 11:3). The measure of growth objectively is the gift and calling -- Grace; subjectively it is the faith of the believer. Our faith falls short of His grace (Num 12:3). When we look at His plan, we see the stature to which we are called (2Co 2:15). We'll only fill the shoes to which we are called if we latch on to God's vision and grace (Luk 6:38, Rom 12:3). The gift God gave us is equal to His grace and calling on us. God used Moses time in Egypt, mingled with his spiritual life to cause growth (Act 7:22, Psa 103:7). Moses understood God's ways; the more we find out about God, the more we reflect Him (Phi 3:10). The remedy for falling is growing; we have to grow in grace and knowledge (2Pe 3:17-18). How? The written word need to become the Living Word in us (2Pe 1:2-10, Gal 2:20, 1Ti 3:16). We need to be diligent to grow up into the full stature of the calling God has given us and provided resources (Rom 11:29).
