07-20-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 20, 2017
Well, Moses was kind of dumbstruck in having this conversation with God!  And with the charge to go back to the land where they wanted his death, he sought every possible excuse he could think of to get out of it.  (Sometimes don’t you just wish that you never answered that phone!)

So Moses began with the obvious, saying: “When I go to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ if they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”  God replied, “I am who am.”  Then he added, “This is what you shall tell the children of Israel:  I AM sent me to you.” Ex_3:13-20

Well!  If it was Bob or George or Henry or even Irving, the natural follow-up would have been “Irving WHO?”  But this one really smashed that excuse!  God certainly doesn’t mess around!  And they’ll be pondering that Name for the next 3500-years!  As a matter of fact, 1500-years later, when Jesus used that same Name, they were ready to stone Him, because nobody except God could have that Name!  Well, duhhhhh!

Sorry, beloved, just couldn’t help it!  Funny though, no matter how hard we try to avoid God’s call, He’ll win every time!

Just reminds me of my first and last attempt to fight “City Hall” on a traffic ticket.  After having taken photographs to prove my point.  After the ticketing police officer described my car with the wrong make and color, I still lost!  Just goes to show – you can’t fight city hall, nor God!  He IS the Great I AM!  Always was and always will be!
