Exodus


Exo 32:27  And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

The word of God separates us from people that we love.  If you determine to serve God it will cause a division.  People thought that Jesus came to bring peace on earth but he said that he came to bring a sword.

Mat 10:34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Mat 10:35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Mat 10:36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
Mat 10:37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Mat 10:38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
Mat 10:39  He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Exodus 18:18

Could it be that world evangelism seems to be too large a task because we like Moses try to perform it alone? Wouldn’t the cause of world evangelism be better served if we were to train others to do the work instead of doing it all ourselves? Isn’t this the training or teaching that we find in 2Ti_2:2 and Eph_4:11-12? You must learn discipleship as soon as possible. Begin now to train others because you are not able to perform it thyself alone. Could it be that world evangelism seems to be too large a task because we like Moses try to perform it alone?

Exodus 23:30 

It is always little by little that God will do the ministry. If he does too much too quick we could never deal with the success and never keep up with the work. We have to grow with our responsibilities. Just do your job to the best of your ability every day. Try to stretch yourself all that you can and you will see what God can do with you It is always little by little by little that we grow and have success in the ministry or our lives for various reasons.
