Scripture reading for January 17th: Genesis 50, Exodus 1-4
Key Scriptures: Exodus 4:29-31 “Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites, and Aaron told them everything the Lord had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people, and they believed. And when they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.”
God saw the misery of His people in Egypt and heard their cry for mercy. He acted by appearing to Moses and calling him and his brother Aaron to go and demonstrate His power to His people and the Egyptians. His goal was that His people would worship Him and enter into a relationship for eternity.
Cause for Joy: Our Lord and God cares for the needs of His people and is concerned enough to act to bring the needed help! “No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was. So Christ also did not take upon Himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to Him, “You are My Son; today I have become your father.” (Hebrews 5:4-5)
