Hebrews 11:24–26 (ESV)
Heroes of Faith
24 By faith Moses, when
he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of
Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
Moses had it all. Living in the pharaoh’s palace, being raised in the family, having the best education... his future was bright. Although he was
born into slavery, he was raised lavishly and never in need. Would you be willing to walk away from such a lavish lifestyle to a life in the desert? Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated
with the people of God. You might say that he denied who he wasn’t and began to proclaim who his real identity. Why is it that we live in a country with freedom of religion and freedom of speech, yet many are afraid to share their identity.
I’m not ashamed of the Gospel!
I pray: O Lord, help me to continue sharing and proclaiming what Jesus has done for me. Help me to share his life, death, and resurrection. Help me to
share the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Help me to take advantage of all the situations as they arise, and proclaim Jesus Christ risen from the dead. Amen.
