The Holy Weedwhacker: October 1 at 10am

Claimed and Called

October 3 2021, 10am
What is it that took Moses from being a refugee who didn’t belong to becoming the leader of his people, standing up to Pharaoh? Before God tells Moses what he will do, God claims him. Don’t underestimate the power of that claim on Moses as he moves forward in this story. He isn’t claimed just by anyone, but by the God of his father. Even though he was raised in Pharaoh’s house, Moses belongs to God and to the people of God. And by responding to God’s claim, Moses denies the claim of Pharaoh, which says he doesn’t matter, and says other people are expendable. I wonder if people who know they belong, people who are welcomed and claimed, are better able to hear God’s call.
