In this week’s message, we look at three objections Moses raised after the Lord called him to go into Egypt. The first was an objection based on credibility: “What if they don’t believe me?” The second was an objection based on ability: “I am slow of speech and tongue.” The third was an objection related to responsibility: “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”
With each objection comes assurance from the Lord. Moses learned that he would be credible because God is credible. He learned that he would be able because God had created him. And he learned that the Lord would take ultimate responsibility for accomplishing his plan.
We, too, may have objections when it comes to serving the Lord by sharing our faith with others. What we ultimately learn, however, is that it’s not about our credibility or ability or responsibility. What the Lord requires of us is our availability.
