Moses thought he knew himself. He knew how others saw him. Then he had an encounter with God that changed everything. Apart from God, Moses was full of guilt, shame, and self-doubt. Once he found his identity in God, he stood up to the king of Egypt, faced his past, convinced more than a million people to follow him into the desert, and governed the nation of Israel for 40 years. It’s easy to allow culture to define us. God wants us to find our identities in him. The source of your identity will change your legacy.
While the Greek word “ekklesia” is mistranslated as “church” in many Bibles, the word means “group” or “gathering.” Christianity has always been a movement, with local groups of people living out the same approach and posture of Jesus.
