Saying No to God
Why would anyone say no to God? God invites Moses to be one of the greatest leaders of all time, and Moses declines the invitation. He says no to God, not once, not twice, but on several occasions. “No God, Please use someone else” are Moses’ words. What was this guy thinking?
Living in the desert couldn’t have been all that much fun. Even if you love sheep, after 40 years of raising them it has got to get old. Why would Moses he choose to live his puny little life in nowhere land instead of answering the call to deliver his people and living out the purpose God to which God had called him?
How often does God call us to his work and we decline? Maybe we are saying no, and we don’t even realize it. We may not verbalize it with our lips, but we say no with our lack of action.
In this message, we will consider the great blessing of accepting God’s call to change our community and identify those things that are keeping us from accepting the call.
