The Gravity of the Call View video
Exodus 4:24 - 4:31
24. At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met {Moses} and was about to kill him.
25. But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son's foreskin and touched {Moses'} feet with it. "Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me," she said.
26. So the LORD let him alone. (At that time she said "bridegroom of blood," referring to circumcision.)
27. The LORD said to Aaron, "Go into the desert to meet Moses." So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him.
28. Then Moses told Aaron everything the LORD had sent him to say, and also about all the miraculous signs he had commanded him to perform.
29. Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites,
30. and Aaron told them everything the LORD had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people,
31. and they believed. And when they heard that the LORD was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.
Reflection
Wake-Up Call (4:24–26)
On the way to Egypt, God comes to Moses to kill him, apparently because Moses had failed to circumcise his son in accordance with God’s covenant with Abraham. Zipporah sees what is about to happen and quickly circumcises their son, successfully appeasing the Lord’s anger. This is a powerful wake-up call alerting Moses to the gravity of what it means to be a leader of the Israelites. Having lived many years among the Midianites, conforming to their culture, he must now fully step into his identity as God’s representative. Let this also be a wake-up call for us to reaffirm our identity as God’s people and recommit ourselves to obeying Him with complete devotion.

The Lord’s Concern (4:27–31)
Moses and Aaron speak with and demonstrate the power of God to the elders of Israel. They are faithful to God’s commands, and the people believe. However, what causes the people to bow down and worship is not the demonstration of signs and wonders but the encouragement that God is concerned about them and sees their misery. God cares for His people, and He is about to deliver them. The ultimate climax of this story of deliverance is found in the gospel, the announcement that God sent His Son Jesus Christ to become an offering for our sins. Let us find rest in the depths of God’s amazing love and worship Him for His great mercy.
Application
- Are there any areas of your life where you have compromised God’s commands? Ask God to purify your heart today so that you might offer Him undivided devotion.

- What are the greatest struggles in your life today? How will you respond to the truth that God is concerned for you and sees your misery?
A Letter to God
Father God, fearing You is the beginning of true wisdom. Teach my heart to fear You and to trust You in view of Your loving concern for me. May my heart worship You for Your wonderful grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
