Letting Go (Exodus 2:1-10)Bo Grace, July 22, 2018
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
One of our greatest needs is a sense of security. We have a need for safety, and the familiar which can affect many different areas of life, so for most of us we have trouble letting things go. That’s why so many people have great difficulty with change. Once we find our comfort zone, that’s where we want to live. That’s where we want to stay.
But sometimes we really need to “let go.” As a matter of fact, you can’t become a child of God unless you “let go” of some things. Becoming a Christian means radical change for most people. But “letting go” is seldom easy especially when it is something you love and cherish.
The next few moments should challenge us – from a spiritual perspective to LET GO of some things.
One of the greatest illustrations of LETTING GO that God made sure was preserved in our Bible is the story of Moses and his mother.

1And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi. 2And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months. 3And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink. 4And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him. 5And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it. 6And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children. 7Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? 8And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother. 9And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it. 10And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water. (KJV)
