They Understood Not

July 3   
Daily Reading – 2 Chronicles 20-22 / Acts 7:1-29

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Acts 7:25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Poor ol Moses. He went out, smote an Egyptian, saved the Israelite boy, and still, the Jewish boys didn’t like him. It has long been said that Egypt in the bible is a picture of this sinful world. God brought Israel out of Egypt, just as He brings those who come know Him as Saviour out of sin and the world. Moses was trying to help, but the verse said, “they understood not.”

    At times, when we try to help people break free from sin and the world, they turn on us. Why is that? Well, for the same reason, they understand not. Moses did finally lead Israel out of Egypt, but it took time. Friends, let’s not give up on those bound and enslaved by the world and sin. They may not understand why we do it, but we must keep on trying.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Isn’t their eternal destiny
worth our continued efforts?
