Be All You Can Be

As Christians are we being ALL WE CAN BE? We all have talent that allows us to make contributions to the expansion of God’s Kingdom. When we don’t utilize our talents we have a tendency to utilize excuses. Moses struggled with this as well. We know Moses as a Leader but he also made excuses:

Exodus 3:11 says But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” Do we sometimes feel we are not qualified?

Exodus 3:13 says Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them?’” Are we concerned we can’t answer questions when asked?

Exodus 4:1 says Then Moses answered and said, “But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The Lord has not appeared to you.’” Do we doubt God’s directions?

Exodus 4:10 says Then Moses said to the LORD, “O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” Do we doubt our skills and abilities?

Exodus 4:13 says But he said, “O my Lord, please send by the hand of whomever else You may send.” Do we simply want someone else to serve? Do we take the easy way out of service due to our age, our schedule, or feel we have served long enough?

God cares about results not reasons (Matt. 28:16-20). Will you BE ALL YOU CAN BE?
