Grades 3-6 Lesson 17 Handout for Sunday School
Moses: An Awesome God Calls a Hesitant Servant
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Philippians 1:6
Key verses or thoughts for this week:
“And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.” Exodus 3:2
“And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.” (Exodus 3:12)
Activity to do at home:
God will certainly call you to do something. Will you find excuses not to follow Him? Or will you put your life in His wise and loving hands. And trust that no matter what He calls you to do, He will be there to help you all along the way. Our verse says that we can be confident that He will complete whatever He begins in us. So let’s decide, even this week, to put our confidence in God, and listen for His call!
When God presents you with a special challenge,
Do reasons not-to-follow fill your head?
Remember He can well-equip a Christian
Who, rather than “I can’t” says “how,” instead.
So step up when you hear The Father calling
For volunteers to follow where He leads.
It isn’t for the biggest, best, and brightest;
But for the willing heart our Father pleads.
Suggested Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for reminding me of how patient and gracious You are. And thank You for including me in Your plans. Help me, Lord, to have my eyes and ears open and ready, in case You should call me to serve You, even this week. And if You do call, help me not to be caught up with the “why not’s” and be ready to simply say “show me the way!” Amen..
