Sermons about Moses
The Bible is the story of God and us. When God’s story intersects yours, you begin to live a new story. Moses and the people of Israel were saved not because they were good enough, but because they believed God.
Once Joseph was born to Rachel, Jacob demanded that Laban send him away to his own place and land. The use of the Hebrew words of place and land coupled with Jacob's imperative to Laban invites the reader and listener of the text to draw parallels with Moses. This helps us as we consider Jacob's rather interesting method for breeding of sheep and goats that is part of the narrative. Jacob, like Moses, learned some things in the wilderness that God then used to bless Jacob. While it is not exactly clear what Jacob did and how it was precisely related to his herds increasing, it is set within the context of a comparison to Moses and the Exodus. Above all it reminds us of God's sovereign blessing that comes to his people, how God uses all the circumstances of their lives to bless them, and that we are to learn from our past.
