I sent Moses to lead you

RE Verse reading–Micah 6:1-8 (day four)  “I sent Moses to lead you, also Aaron and Miriam”  (vs 4)  As God makes his case against Judah, as He reminds of His faithfulness and contrasts it with their unfaithfulness,  He recalls the leaders He has sent to them.  Ephesians 4 makes a similar point.  “And He GAVE some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints. . .until we all attain. . .to the fullness of Christ”  (vs11-13)  One of the ways that God speaks His love to us is by sending us leaders. Sunday School teachers, pastors and Presidents, mayors and managers.  They are gifts from God!  It is possible, in our tension with authority in general,  to forget that behind even imperfect leaders is a perfect love of God.  Read Romans 13 and Hebrews 13:17-18.  May we be faithful and prayerful and grateful followers.  Leaders are expressions of His love.

  1. As one who has made mistakes in this area, this post is particularly thought provoking. Thanks.

    I did read Romans 13. Interesting that this set of instructions came from Paul who lived his life in beatings and imprisonments for sharing the Gospel. Obviously this was not the result of just being quiet/submissive and doing good in the eyes of the leaders who had the power to treat him such ways. I guess it just goes to show that sometimes there is a higher call on a person’s life. May God give me Wisdom to always know the difference.
