Rules That Release (The Ten Commandments)
So often we can picture the Ten Commandments as a frustrating set of rules that ultimately restrict our freedom. In this message we explore not only how to creatively remember the Ten Commandments, but also the significance of God’s rules not being that which restrict us, but rather release us into the life he designed us to have.
God’s rules are always for our release, moving us day by day from slave to priest.
Take the Call (The Calling of Moses)
When forced to respond to the call of God upon each of our lives, whether that moment is a “burning bush” or a simple recognition of the people and/or places that God has entrusted to us, there is a natural anxiety and fear that can so easily paralyze us. Moses felt this, and God like a expert prosecutor nailed him to the stand with questions that challenged the way he saw himself, and that which he had in his hands.
Because there is a big difference between hearing the call and taking the call.
