Living Our Faith

"And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice -- the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him." Romans 12:1

Read Exodus 2:1-10.

Who would have thought, after Pharaoh commanded his people to throw all newborn Hebrew boys in the Nile, that one of those Hebrew boys would grow up in his own palace?

Who would have thought that it would be Pharaoh's own daughter who would unwittingly bring the Hebrew boy into the palace that would lead the Hebrew people out of Egypt (which was Pharaoh's biggest fear AND the reason for ordering the death of all Hebrew baby boys)?

It's an ironic turn of events (after the last verse of Exodus 1) for us who know who this baby in the basket grew up to be. But that is what happened, and as we read through Exodus we begin to understand just how important this event was for the life of God's people.

We also understand that this event was no accident. In these 10 verses we see that the God who created the world and who called Abraham and his descendants to be His people was working through even Pharaoh's daughter. We don't know how many babies died, but we know that God saved Moses, and through Him God had the plan already to save His people and to bring them into the land He had promised them.

So great is our God that He can work through the most unexpected people and in the most unexpected ways. So great is our God that we always have hope.
