Honor Roll of Faith, Moses

Hebrews 11:23-26 Hebrews 3-12
God protected baby Moses in the basket. God will protect us in scary situations. 30 children. youth leader.

Let's pray for the people in terror around the world.

By faith, after Moses was born, he was hidden by his parents for three months, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they didn't fear the king's edict.   By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter and chose to suffer with the people of God rather than to enjoy the short-lived pleasure of sin.   For he considered the reproach because of the Messiah to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, since his attention was on the reward.

Persecuted but not afraid. 780 verses mention Moses. He came to see Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration.

Little kids in sports are cheered on by the parents. When they become successful they thank their moms. In time, Joseph and all of his brothers died, ending that entire generation. But their descendants, the Israelites, had many children and grandchildren. In fact, they multiplied so greatly that they became extremely powerful and filled the land.

That struck fear in Pharoah.
You are an image bearer of Christ and need not fear.

If you want to be an image bearer of Christ:

1. Tell faith stories to your family.
What has God done for you.
2. Tell the story of freedom in Jesus.
God told Abraham that his descendants would be slaves for 400 years.

God will set you free. In the difficult moments in life. God will lead you into freedom. Can you wait for him?
God's word is true.

Jochabad had faith that God would keep her son safe. She released in faith.

Moses wrote the 5 books of the Bible. She told Moses the story of Genesis. He rose up to demand that Pharaoh let his people go.

We are image bearers of a faithful God. You can tell the story. Do you want to?

Do you have a spiritual mentor in your life?  If not get one. Who are you telling the story?
