Sermon: Overcoming the Resistance

Exodus 4:1-31

Featured Verse:
Exodus 4:10-12

But Moses said to the Lord, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”


In Exodus 3, Moses is given a clear yet difficult call from God. In Exodus 4, Moses tries to resist this call. Do you ever find yourself resisting God’s call? What are the factors that tend to keep us from following God in faith? As we explore these questions, we will see how our faith requires God’s grace.
