Sermon Short for August 27th, 2017


Exodus 1:8-2:10
Romans 12:1, 2

Baby Moses is cast out into the Nile in a basket. Here is another of God’s stories that makes no sense. What are the chances that a basket randomly floating in the River Nile would make it to the Pharaoh’s marina and be picked up by the princess? What are the chances that the woman would knowingly take the foreign baby into her care? What are the chances they would arrange for the child’s own mother to come from the slave ghetto to nurse the baby. No chance, IMHO.

But that is the chance God takes with the future of his people. Maybe it’s not about chances or even rational thinking. God has a way of making things work out regardless of whatever makes sense to us.
