Exodus 3:1 - 15

Whew!

The end of yet another long Tuesday of classes from 1:00 PM to 9:40 PM.

The sermon went off without a hitch. (Thanks be to God!) The class responded well. Dr. Q. told us that we could preach to whatever context we wanted to - whatever context we were in. So I decided to preach to the preaching class. It made the most sense. And I have to say it went off better than I expected.

I had to preach on Exodus 3:1 - 22, which I narrowed down to 3:1 - 15. The sermon's focus was on Moses' question in v. 11 and God's response in v. 12 and v. 14.

When Moses asks, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?" God responds, "I will be with you." God answers Moses' twofold question of authority and identity with an appeal to his continuing presence - not to Moses' résumé. I elaborated on this for about 20 minutes, bringing the implications to bear on myself and the rest of the class. And many said the sermon moved them. Praise God!!!
