III. The Mission

7And the Lord said: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.

8 So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.

9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. 10 Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.

Exodus 3:7–10 (NKJV)
  • Moses’ Mission was Clear: Deliver Israel!
    • from slavery
    • from oppression
    • to their destiny and promise

IV. The Jitters

11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
12 So He said, “I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”

Exodus 3:11–12 (NKJV)
  • It is natural to ask “Why would God want me to do ministry?”
    • Who am I?
    • God says that it does not matter who you are.
    • It matters who He is, and that He will go with you!
