JOHN SHIRK-In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the witness of Moses.
Jesus said to His skeptics in John 5:46, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.”
Where did Moses write about Jesus? The place is Deuteronomy 18:15, where Moses said, “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.” This was not something that Moses came up with by himself. God revealed it to him. In verse 18, Moses said that the LORD told him, “I will raise up for them a prophet like you among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account.”
By the words of Moses, we see that the words of Jesus have divine origin. The words of Jesus are worth our full attention and acceptance.
The witness of Moses concerning Jesus is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

JOHN SHIRK – At the burning bush, God was calling Moses to lead His people out of Egypt toward the Promised Land.
Moses needed some encouragement. He had reasons to excuse himself from this assignment.
“Who am I to go to Pharoah to make such a request?”
“What if I go back to the Israelites and they don’t believe that You sent me?”
“I am not eloquent. I am slow of speech.”
“Lord, please send someone else to do it.”
For every excuse that Moses made, God responded with assurances that He would make provisions to help Moses accomplish the task.
Where God calls us into service, He provides us with His presence and resources to help us fulfill His calling on our lives. Moses ran out of excuses, and did go back to Egypt to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.
The calling of Moses is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
