Acts 1:1-8, Genesis 11:1-4, Exodus 3-4:1, Jonah 1-3:1, Romans 15:17-20
So, we are going to look at what God’s plan has been for his people from the very first pages of Scripture.
So, twice–once at the end of Luke and once at the beginning of Acts, Jesus gives very clear instructions to the disciples. Beginning from Jerusalem, they are to take the gospel to the four corners of the earth.
The law of Inertia states that “A body in motion tends to remain in motion, while a body at rest tends to remain at rest.”
We live out the old McDonald’s commercial–you deserve a break today.
But when it came to using Moses to do it, not so much. So, he started giving God one excuse after another.
Do you find yourself staying put when God says go because you’re either too comfortable or too insecure?
I have to wonder if we sometimes miss God’s heart for people because we’ve already decided that God would never want to save them?
Remember, God’s will WILL be accomplished. He proved it at Babel. He proved it with Moses. He proved it with Jonah. And he proved it in the book of Acts.
Maybe this is our time to put self on the shelf.
