God Will Raise Up for You a Prophet
Dr. Tony Chute, Lead Pastor
Overview: Moses was a leader who learned to become a delegator once he realized that there were more people with more needs than he could handle. He established three offices in the Promised Land—judges, priests, and kings— to ensure Israel would remain faithful to the Lord and to resolve conflict among the people. Leaders in each category were thus called to be godly in their character, impartial in their assessment, and unwavering in their commitment to the Lord. Their presence would not bring an end to dissension among the people of God, but their faithful living and formal application of God’s Word would point Israel to a better world with a better Leader. This pattern of godly leadership for the sake of God’s people provides relevant application for the church today.
