From Here to There
We can often be controlled by things other than God. Those things can be bad things (anger or addiction), good things (our jobs or relationships), and even religious things (keeping rules and striving to win God’s approval). In “Freedom,” Pastor Dave Gustavsen shares how God sets us free – it’s a freedom that involves a cost, and is something we are to remember and celebrate.
For the Hebrew people, here was not a good place to be. As despised slaves in Egypt, they were stripped of dignity and without hope. But God had a dream for their future: to bring them there. Through some of the most memorable events in history—the burning bush, Moses confronting Pharaoh, crossing the Red Sea—God powerfully led his people from here to there. It’s an epic story…and it can be our story. Whatever our here is, will we trust the God who wants to lead us there?
