As we continue in Exodus 3, we see who calls Moses. Yesterday we saw the call, today the Caller.
Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?”
God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
Moses then is called by the I am, YAHWEH, the One without equivalent. Moses is called by the ultimate Caller, the Caller without equal, by the One whose existence is reliant on nothing and nobody else, the One who is entirely different and set apart (v.5).
There was another who used this title, another who described themselves this way, One who identified themselves in the same terms and in doing so identifies for us who was speaking from the bush, who is the Caller. Perhaps the most well-known example is from John 8,
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
Upon hearing this, [the Jews] picked up stones to throw at him, because they knew this was Jesus identifying Himself as God, the great I am, YAHWEH, the LORD.
The same Caller of Moses is calling you. Jesus calls you to come to Him and drink of living water (John 7.37).
Jesus calls you to come to Him if you are weary and burdened.
Jesus calls you to come to Him and He will give you rest.
Jesus calls you to come to Him because He is gentle, humble, and in Him we find rest for our souls (Matthew 11.28-30).
The same Caller of Moses is calling you. Have you answered? Will you answer afresh today?
