Jesus Our Everything: Week 5, Day 5

Question of the Day: According to verses 25 and 26, Moses was able to endure because his eyes were fixed on the reward. What was this reward?

Today’s Scripture: Hebrews 11:23-31 (S.O.A.P. Hebrews 11:26-27)

By faith, when Moses was born, his parents hid him[a] for three months, because they saw the child was beautiful and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. 24 By faith, when he grew up, Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to be ill-treated with the people of God than to enjoy sin’s fleeting pleasure. 26 He regarded abuse suffered for Christ[b] to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for his eyes were fixed on[c] the reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt without fearing the king’s anger, for he persevered as though he could see the one who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood,[d] so that the one who destroyed the firstborn would not touch them. 29 By faith they crossed the Red Sea as if on dry ground, but when the Egyptians tried it, they were swallowed up. 30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell after the people marched around them[e] for seven days. 31 By faith Rahab the prostitute escaped the destruction of[f] the disobedient, because she welcomed the spies in peace.

Moses was looking to his eternal reward- the benefits of God’s kingdom. We will experience sacrifices and trials, but like Moses we must endure faithfully to the end knowing that our treasure is not here on earth but in the kingdom of God. We should desire the rewards and joys of heaven and use that desire to do God’s will and sustain us in our trials.
I pray my focus will be on the invisible world rather than the seen world.
