Invitational Excuses

When God speaks to Moses about his mission to free the children of Israel from Egypt, Moses resists no less than 5 times and his resistance is instructive. He has the same anxieties we all experience when confronted with the God’s prompting to expand beyond our present experiences and capability. First he says Who am I to do this? He clearly doesn’t believe in himself. Second When I come to the Children of Israel they are going to ask me in whose name I am acting? Third well even if I believe in myself they won’t believe in me. Fourth I am no good at public speaking. Fifth send someone else. What’s your excuse? Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
