Seeds of Faith Nov 8-13

A talking bush? Really? You don’t say, Moses. It was on fire and it never burned up? Right. Tell us another tall tale. Oh that bush gave you a message that God has seen our suffering under the heavy handed Pharaoh of Egypt and now he’s going to do something about it.

We can imagine why Moses was uncertain about bringing this message to the Israelites. It seems ridiculous.

So God took Moses’ fears and sealed them off with God’s own personal name: Yahweh. The one who IS. The God of their forefathers.

As we live out our lives in our own personal Egypts of sin, suffering, and death, Christian’s lives are sealed with the personal name of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That name makes us his own, for it is sealed in His own Son’s death and resurrection.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
