His hands, long stretched to heaven, grew weary, "heavy," feeble; he could no longer raise them up, much less stretch them out, by his own muscular energy. They sank down, and dropped by his sides. If the battle was not to be lost, it was necessary to find some remedy. Apparently, Aaron and Hur bethought themselves of an effective remedy, none being suggested by Moses.
The Faith of Moses Columbia researcher Sheena Iyengar has concluded that the average individual makes about seventy conscious decisions every day. This morning we are going to look at a man who made mostly good decisions: He was a remarkable man. I would speak to them in dreams.
Of all my house, he is the one I trust. He sees the Lord as he is. So why were you not afraid to criticize my servant Moses? Moses became a great servant of God because of a series of events and decisions in his life.
We are going to look at some of those today in Hebrews There are five different choices that are spotlighted in this text. If you look back to the beginning of the book of Exodus, the second book in the Bible, you can read the story. Over the course of the next many years the Hebrews or the Jews, as we know them today grew to be a significant part of the population in Egypt.
So much so, Pharaoh was concerned they might take over the country. To defend against this he made the Hebrews their slaves. Next he gave the order to throw all the male babies into the river to drown. It was during this time that Moses was born. They hid their baby for three months which could not have been an easy task.
When they could hide him no longer they made a bold move. The parents of Moses and the midwives acted in faith. They did what was right even though it involved what we would call civil disobedience or deliberately and knowingly refusing to obey a law or command as a form of protest of that law.
Civil disobedience is not the same as blatant criminal activity that shows disdain for the law. It is a respectful refusal to obey. People who engage in civil disobedience know there may be consequences for their actions.
You may go to jail, be fired from your job, lose some friendship, or even be killed. They risk or endure the consequences in order to be faithful to their conscience or, in our case, to the Law of God.
Let me give you some examples of when we might engage civil disobedience. Refusing to participate in an abortion procedure Refusing to obey a government rule that says the church cannot meet or has to engage in a practice it believes is wrong or immoral for example that they have to perform same sex wedding or lose their tax-exempt status.
Refusing to be part of a cover-up of criminal activity at the place you work Refusing to be part of a policy which discriminates against the poor or needy Civil disobedience is standing on principle.Biography And Character Profile Of Joshua From The Bible.
