EXPERIENCING GOD
“The Call of God to Serve” (Part 1)
Exodus 2:1-4:17 

Introduction: Have you ever seen what God can do with an ordinary person? The Bible is filled with examples, including one named Moses. His story is a great illustration of how God prepares and equips those He calls to serve. This can clearly be seen in the three segments of his life. His first forty years in the house of pharaoh; his second forty years in the wilderness; and his third forty years leading God’s people in the wilderness. The first eighty years were preparation for the call of the last forty years.

1st 40—Moses’ Preparation in the Palace 
His Private Birth (Exodus 2:1-2)
His Privileged Background (Exodus 2:3-10) 

His Providential Burden & Departure (Exodus 2:11-15)

2nd 40—Moses’ Preparation in the Wilderness (Hebrews 11:24-25)
His Foreign Companion (Exodus 2:16-22)
His Flaming Call
--the cries of the people (Exodus 2:23)
--the covenant of God (Exodus 2:24-25)
--the calling of Moses (Exodus 3:1-10)
--the concerns (excuses) of Moses—I have:
   no ability (Exodus 3:11-12)
   no message (Exodus 3:13-22)
   no authority (Exodus 4:1-4:9)          
   no eloquence (Exodus 4:10-12) 
   no courage (Exodus 4:13)
--the candor of God (4:14-17)

Application: What has God prepared and called you to that you may not be seeing? If you know, what are your excuses for not fulfilling it? God is serious about the callings on your life, are you?

Conclusion: What makes a life valuable, a life successful, a life that fulfills a calling placed on it; when a “do what moment” overcomes the “what if moments” to become a “defining moment.”

“Experiencing God”

  1. God is always at work around you
  2. God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal—preparing and equipping you
  3. God invites you to become involved with Him in His work
    —His calling
  4. God speaks through the HS, His Word, prayer, and circumstances to reveal His purposes and His ways
  5. God’s invitation many times leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action to proceed
  6. Then adjustments need to be made for you to join Him
  7. Then you come to know Him more intimately through your experience as you obey Him, and He does great things through your life

 

True Success is…
--discovering your God-given purpose in life
--growing to reach your maximum potential
--investing in others that blesses and benefits them
