Lesson Text: Exodus 3: 1-7, 10,
The book of Exodus begins with a
description of the dire plight of God's
people in Goshen. foUowinjr the ae
cession to the throne of a new dynas
ty in Egypt, "who knew not Joseph."
i The; descendants of Jacob were now
subjected to cruel treatment and hard
labor. The birth of Moses prepared
the way for a deliverance in God's
Step by step, we are led to aee the
. young deliverer's preparation (both
- in Egypt and in the wilderness with
i the priest of Midian) for the task for
- which he was brought into the world,
In our lesson this week, we learn of
the call of this ' great leader to a
definite task that of leading the
Chosen People into a chosen land.
"i Moses' life can be divided into three
- phases, each of about the same dura
tion. He has been estimated to have
been 120 years old when he died. The
" first part naturally includes his child
hood and education as a young man
in Egypt His religious ideals came
from the .teachings of his mother, but
' he; was also learned . in. all the arts
, and sciences-of the Egyptians, having
ibeen reared, as the son of Pharoah's
' , The second period covers a different
' kind ,of preparation. Up to this time,
he had been leading the easy and cul-
- tared life of an Egyptian prince, yet
; conscious of his racial kinship to the
enslaved Hebrews. Visiting his peo
ple one day, he saw1 an Egyptian task-
' master mistreat .one . of the Hebrew
; : workmen and. in an impetuous, un-
, thinking mood, killed the Egyptian.
i The consequence of this rash and un
calculateft act was unforeseen.-' It is
a tribute 'to the Egyptian spirit of
justice of that day, however, that the
royal court sought to arrest a prince
r .of Egypt for the death of a citizen,
but Moses, aware of the imminent
danger,' disappeared in flight. - ' :
- , Escaping from Egypt, Moses made
his way to the region. sj4 M'ViiflB,
east of Mi Sinai, near the Red Sea.
Living the life of a fujritive." Moses
had ample opportunity, for an inten-
sive sell-analysis and reflection upon
. the fundamental religious problems
Which naturally come to a thoughtful
man. ' - &
The .third period of Moses' life
shows him, a disciplined and capable
leader, training a mass of former
slaves into a nation, giving them laws
and ideals, setting a high plane for
tne rest or the world to emulate. -'
Our lesson this week concerns par
ticularly the second period of Moses'
' life. After killing the Egyptian and
escaping to the desert country, Moses
met and wed Zipporah, daughter of
Jethro, ' the Priest of Midian,, whose
other name, Reuel, meant ''friend of
God." Evidently, the Midianitea were
monotheistic - in belief -not unusual
because they, too, were descendant of
Abraham. So, for a long period of
time, probably around forty years,
who seems to have been a man ox
much power and sagacity.. For sev
eral decades, Moses, the one-time
prince, followed, the calling of. a shep
herd, having forgotten, the-authority
and glamour which surrounded him in
Egypt. Apparently, he was well con
: tented but he was to be pulled out of
his lethargy by a strangely-acted in
spiration from God. ; ,
Busy with commonplace affairs,
. Moses' turned aside to investigate a
bush that was burning in the desert
but which, was, not consumed. , His
curiosity was rewarded with a revela
tion of diety. Tvoa the God of. his
fathers, he received, the call to de
liver his'oppressed kinsmen from the
tyranny of the Egyptians. ,
, Mentally considering the call for
this unusua) and dangerous Jservice,
Moses had four reasons why he should
not undertake the mission. First, he
felt that be was too insignificant; in
r'piy, Jehovah promised to be with
U:n. ' Second, he wantc i to know the
'name of this divine power and "I am"
was given him, indzcatin the un-
char-injf authority and .t..e evince
of Jahve. In the .third place, Hoses
said the Israelites would mrt be;;ve
or accept limj Jehovah -;" i Urn

Every Sunday Jimmy stands here in the choir
loft along with twenty other boys singing some
of the most' glorious music ever written.
For three years lie has been singing for his
church, and now after these many months he
wouldn't miss practices for the world.-' . t i j
But it wasn't always like that! During those
first months tears were shed and Dad had to force
Jimmy to attend rehearsals, because you see
immy didn't know what was best.
, ' There is a job for everybody at church. ' Maybe
it isn't as obvious as singing in the choir. Maybe
"it's something that's never been done before. But
the thing is, you'll never know until you go and
find ouf. . ' .'(
' All of us aren't as lucky as Jimmy. Most of us.
and especially we grown-ups, don't have anyone
to insist that we go to church.
But the need is there. We need the church and
its teaching, and the church needs us to extend
its work and services.
Go to church next Sunday and find out how
you can oest serve uod.
