Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Tuesday 6 October  Acts  7: 33-38

V33:  Moses must learn, and be humbled before, God’s Holiness. Do we always remember that we come to a Holy God, or can we at times be too casual in our approach to Him – though He is the God of all grace?

V34:  God declares He is now about to deliver His people. Again, let us learn His will and His time are not as we would wish, but He is Sovereign, and His time is always right. Moses is His chosen instrument, now being sent to Egypt again.

V35-36:  The one Israel had rejected as a deliverer is now God’s appointed one for that purpose. The clear parallel with Jesus is emphasised in the words ” ruler and redeemer”. Their partial historic application in Moses points us to their absolute fulfilment in Jesus. Do we know Him, by grace, as our ” redeemer king”?

V37:  And Moses foretold the coming of a God-given prophet who, like Moses in his generation, was sent to reveal God’s truth (Deuteronomy 18:15. ) Like Moses, but so much greater (Hebrew 3:3.)

V38:  The ” living oracles” given through Moses were God’s Law, God’s Word – but Jesus is the living Word of God, come to reveal the Father. (John 1:1,John 1:14,John 1:18.) The angel of the Lord who spoke to, and was with Moses again points us to Jesus.
