10 When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.”
Earlier in the text a man and a woman from the tribe of Levi have a baby. The baby had to be hidden because Hebrew children were ordered to be killed during this time. Once past the age to be killed, the birth mother left him near the Nile river where a princess found the child. This leads us into the text above where Moses is named.
There are a few people who believe Moses means to deliver, or draw out. For the sake of conversation I am going to side with those people. Moses was drawn out or delivered from death and therefore he was able to draw out others from eternal death. He was saved and so he was able to save.
I look at my own life and my journey with Jesus. I remember being a lost little freshman with little purpose in mind other than to play baseball and have fun. I was able to be saved by Jesus. Once this happened my eyes were opened to the opportunity of saving others. Disclaimer* Jesus is the one who saves people, not us. We are the middle man.
Anyways, what’s the deal Colin? Well, you have this opportunity. No matter where you are at. To either be saved by Jesus or to help* save someone and lead them to Jesus. What an amazing opportunity this is! Lets look for people to draw out of the darkness and into the light. Meet them where they are at and just love them. Don’t make it any harder than that.
Who needs to be drawn out of darkness?
Do I need to be drawn out of something?
Dear Lord, thank you for today. You didn’t have to wake us up today, but you did. For that reason I pray we make it count! Lets love on some people today and let the Spirit guide us in conversation. Amen.
Have a great day!
