Who of us, when gathered in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings think about the problems of life instead of focusing on God and what He has in store for each of us this morning. Who of us is engaged in His ministry and who is here to check of a list? When Moses saw the burning bush he put everything aside and he went toward that bush to see what was going on. God had his attention! Do we understand this morning the seriousness of who is speaking to us? Does God have our undivided attention?
As God got Moses' attention with the burning bush, He also has our attention with the cross of Jesus Christ. The cross is talked about every day. God revealed Himself thru the cross, just as He revealed Himself to Mozes thru the burning bush. Many of us are not willing to investigate what God has in store for our lives. Often we are not even in His presence, as life (sports, TV, concerts) are more important then spending time with His people in His house.
What is it you fear most? Death, retirement, financial downfall, your health? Fear is born out of the unknown. So what do you do when you are afraid? Are you impatient just as King Saul? Do you rely on self and take matters in your own hand; because you fear men more then you fear God? Or do you get on your knees and turn to the Lord and wait patiently for Him to answer?
Why is God mindful of His creation? Why would God speak to you and me today? Why did God in flesh suffer and die for us? It is to bring us to Him for His glory. To bring us to repent from our sins, so we glorify Him.
As you say "He is risen indeed", does joy flood your heart or does doubt creep in. How does the fact of Jesus' resurrection guide and move you. Do you doubt as the apostles doubted? (Luke 24:11) What do you do with what God is showing you. How do you share Jesus' testimony outside the walls of the church building?
