VERB's Newsletter

This week at VERB:

Last night we talked through part 2 of "The Exodus Project" and we took a small look at the plagues that God laid out on Egypt in the attempt for Pharaoh to let God's people the Israelites go. As we study Pharaoh and his reaction to each one of the plagues we discover that a lot of us act like Pharaoh. When God comes along and ask us to let go of ourselves so that we can truly worship Him we act stubborn and we act like were bigger then God and we can one up Him. When God ask us to give up certain things in our life to worship Him we don't, we hold on to them ever so tightly. Then finally when we do give over things to God we do it just to feel relief just like Pharaoh did each time to feel relief from the plagues only to change his mind. Much like us when we leave church or close our Bible or walk away from our prayer time we change our mind and pick up the right where we left off.

Hopefully as we discovered last night how easy it is for us to be like Pharaoh that we pick up the fact that God is right in front of us asking us everyday to let go of ourselves a little more so that we truly can worship Him freely.

VERB is taking the summer to read through the book of Exodus if you don't have a copy you can get yours here:
