“But I can not speak”

with one comment


Moses said to the LORD, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The LORD said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.” Then the LORD’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.” Exodus 4:10-14

What you read about Moses in chapter 4 of Exodus is the beginning of a method called Sanctification. Sanctification is God’s deliverance of a person from the power of sin. Sanctification means to dedicate, to make holy, to separate and to set apart. To sanctify is to set something apart or someone for God from its common use. (Titus 2:14)

The primary purpose of this process is make the believer holy for the purpose of God. (1 Corinthians 6:11)

The method is a seven step process (God’s perfect plan) whereas we are 6 (falling short of God’s perfection).

DIVINELY: “Chosen by the foreknowledge of God the Father through the sanctification of the Spirit unto obedience and by the cleansing of the blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:2)

PERSONALLY: “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (11 Corinthians 7:1)

BEAUTIFULLY: The beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29); Glorious in holiness (Exodus 15:11)

PROGRESSIVELY: “Follow holiness without which no person can see God.” (Hebrews 12:14)

LOVIINGLY: Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it that he might sanctify and cleanse it by the washing of the Word. (John 1:1-14) 

REDEMPTIVELY: “Wherefore Jesus, that might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered…” (Hebrews 13:12)

PURPOSELY: “Because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctificiation of the Spirit and belief in the truth.” (II Thessalonians 2:13)
