Speaking the Truth in Love
Moses and The Christ
Introduction: As Christians we know that Jesus is our ultimate example of perfection. There are also many individuals in the scriptures that we can look to as examples of righteousness, and thus did many things in ways similar to Jesus. We are in the midst of a series of programs that compares some of these individuals to Jesus. Some of these people were similar because their lives emulated His life; others were similar because events that happened in their lives corresponded with events in His life. In all of these cases we can see the consistency of the Scriptures and of God's expectations for His followers. For this study we will begin by comparing the life of Moses to Jesus, The Christ.
SIMILARITIES BETWEEN MOSES AND THE CHRIST
• Both initiated a covenant through blood: Moses & Jesus (Hebrews 9:18-28, 10:10)
Invite all to our assemblies and our gospel meeting November 3-6, 2013 (Sunday-Wednesday)
Closing: There are other similarities between Moses and Jesus that we did not have time to discuss this evening. However, from the ones we did have time for, it is clear to see why so much of the Bible discusses Moses in the likeness of Jesus. Notice Acts 3:22-26. Moses was a prophet and delivered the Old Testament law and the Levitical priesthood. These foreshadowed the New Testament Law and the everlasting priesthood that Jesus delivered for all. Do you want to be a priest in the church of Jesus Christ? Why not become a Christian today? You will need to humbly submit to the will of God like Moses did. Believe Jesus, confess that He is the Son of God, repent of your sins, and be baptized to wash them all away in His blood. The reward is a meaningful life on earth and eternal life in Heaven! Why are you waiting?
For November we plan to rerun this program. Our next live program is planned for Monday, December 2, on “Speaking The Truth In Love” when we study “The Passover Lamb and The Christ“. We hope to see you then.
