Introducing Moses - Leader Extraordinaire

Exodus 4-12

From baby afloat, to Pharaoh’s house, to murderer’s row, to lowly shepherd, to leader of God’s people. Sounds like a fairy tale, but it is reality in the power of God!

In Moses’ emergence as the leader of the Israelite nation, we see:

I. A Growing Faith (Exodus 4:18-5:1)

A. Recap

B. Faith on the move, with some hiccups:

1. By virtue of his calling, became a

2. By virtue of calling, was

despised. Again by both, but kept

pressing! (5:4-21)

3. By virtue of his calling, became

an alien in a foreign land, but

kept pressing!

4. Doubted God, but kept pressing!

(5:22-23, 6:12, 30)

A. The staff (4:1-4)

(**Pharaoh says “Go!” and then

B. The Promise of God

1. The people would not listen to

Moses’ call to persevere. (6:9)

2. Pharaoh’s response

A. Had magicians duplicate

some of the signs and as a
