We’re so used to the story of Moses and the burning bush that we often don’t realize how unusual the situation is… consider a worker today who has a well-established career… he lives in a distant suburb. One day, he’s driving into work and sees a car hovering in the air, suspended by nothing. Who wouldn’t turn aside to see something that our senses tell us is impossible?
And then… just imagine, he hears the voice of God, telling him that he God has chosen him for some task. Him! With a past he wants to forget, God wants him!
Can you imagine the situation!? No wonder Moses was afraid and made excuses! Who of us would not have acted in a similar fashion?
