Question(s) for Reflection
• Q 2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q 5: Is there any warning for me to heed?
We are approaching the final stages of the actions taken by God to permanently rescue His people from their age-long oppressors. The first step was to expose His servant to what He was about to do to force Egyptians to allow the Israelites out of their land. Second, He instructed them on how the people should prepare by borrowing articles of gold and silver from their Egyptian neighbours. What lesson as ministers of God can we learn from Moses in v.3?
Every servant of the Lord must command respect and not demand it from his followers, and those outside the Church. People around the servant of the Lord should also testify to his reputation, integrity, and good behaviour. Read 1 Timothy 3:1-7 for some of the qualities of a good leader.
The last plague was going to be more severe and that would have the most devastating effect on the people and their families. The first born of every man and of animals shall die in one night. Read vs.9-10 again and see how God took time to forewarn Moses that Pharaoh’s heart would still be hardened; but before then observe Moses’ confident and prophetic announcement to Pharaoh in vs.4-8. The Church of God needs leaders who are confident in what they say and do for the Kingdom.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
Dear Lord, give us Spirit-filled, confident, and bold leaders who can face the oppressive governments of our time.
