Greeting and Family Matters for Sunday, November 10, 2019

When God called Moses to tell Pharaoh to let His people go, Moses had an identity crisis. He was aware of his inability to take on the great task. But eventually he trusted in God, the great I am, who was about to keep the promise He had made to the patriarchs. The Early Church was beset with conflicting teachings in the decades after Jesus’ ascension. But Paul reminded the faithful that God had chosen them to be saved. As they awaited Jesus’ return, he urged them to rely on God for the comfort and hope they needed. We, too, by ourselves are helpless, dead in sin, but, as Jesus told His detractors, God is not God of the dead, but of the living, and we shall live with Him forever.
