Lessons from Moses

It seems to be quite the topic, Pastor Scott talked about Moses last Sunday, and Turning point is talking about Moses toady as well.
Yet just on the previous radio sermon on before this one we were being (what seemed to be legalistic) warned about Gods unchanging nature and Sodom and Gomorrah etc.
Yet I think the differences are God's Mercy and Grace has never changed, If you sin, God has always made a way of repentance and forgiveness, It is called Grace and God gave us grace through himself in the person of Jesus Christ and it is by the sacrifice He made that we are given the grace to live for God without the fear associated with the "fail and fry" as the legalistic's would give you. Everyone is destined to fail at one time or another, most of the time not by choice but by weakness. We were promised this even in the old testament, and the pharisees should have known this, even today's pharisee would have to agree...

Let's Argue This Out
18-20"Come. Sit down. Let's argue this out."
This is God's Message:
"If your sins are blood-red,
they'll be snow-white.
If they're red like crimson,
they'll be like wool.
If you'll willingly obey,
you'll feast like kings.
But if you're willful and stubborn,
you'll die like dogs."
That's right. God says so.
So even back in the old testament it has always been a matter of the heart. Who do you serve?, As for me and my house, We will serve the Lord.
The entire Bible is about change. not instant change, but serving God, and letting him slowly change you into the likeness of Christ.
