SENT FOR A PURPOSE!
“Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharoah, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt!” Exodus 3:10
AS MEN OF HONOR:
We must understand all that we do is based upon how we view God, how we worship Him, how we interact with Him, the way we live, the way we speak, and all that we accept or reject is based upon all that we hold in our heart and mind to be true about God. Accepting or rejecting our purpose and mission is determined by what we believe about God. Whether we worship God with all of our mind, all of our heart, and all of our soul. So then we must have a real view of God in order to accept his calling in our life.
If we believe in God then we easily accept our calling, if we doubt God then we easily reject our calling, and so on. Who is God, and what does He require of us? What He requires of us is to believe in Him, and to understand that He is greater than any! The most important thing in our life is to have a correct view of God and what he desires. It is the most important thing about us, we must be determined to know only the truth about who God is, so that we can move forward to greatness in life.
GOD IS… SELF-EXISTENT AND SELF SUFFICIENT, BUT WE ARE FULLY DEPENDENT UPON GOD!
We need God for all things in our life! God is the giver of life! Not only do we need to know God and who He is, but we need to understand ourselves and admit that we are not able to live a righteous life without Him. We are not able to fulfill our purpose, the reason why we are here, and what God has planned for our lives without having Jesus by our side every step of the way. God doesn’t need us, because He is Self-Existent and Self-Sufficient. But we are the ones who need him!
Herein God called Moses to be the leader of his people, in other words the Great “I Am” called Moses to do it! Our ability to know who is calling us gives us the ability to accept the call. We are not called by someone that has been created out of the figments of our imagination. We will never be able to follow through and accomplish anything until we realize who has asked us to do it. It is our God who calls us, and God has always been! Never was he ever created, nor is he accountable to us or anyone or anything, yet we are accountable to Him! What right does God have to call us? Because God says “I Am” We need to be clear about who God is! God has the right to call us, because he gives us life! We were bought with a price as we read,
“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” 1 Corinthians 6:20
When God calls us to do a thing, we must answer him with the joyful understanding that we are so very privileged to be a part of a good work. God deserves the Glory for our lives and everything that we are called to do. In fact God is glorified through us, we are His children, so we might regularly ask God, even as Jesus asked,
"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." John 17:3-5
God gives us glory. He does not need humanity, he created it, but doesn’t need it. We need him for all things in life, and we ought to be forever grateful for all that He has done. We are sent for his purposes and we rejoice in this great opportunity to serve!
