Has God ever called you to do something you didn't want to do? Maybe you didn't feel adequately? Maybe you felt that someone else could do a better job? You beg God to choose someone else but He doesn't. He has chosen you! At some point, we need to have the courage to answer God's call. Today, we unpack Moses' call to leadership and the excuses he tried to give God. Then we'll parallel Moses' call to save Israel, with Jesus' call to save humanity.
