Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law and he lead the flock to the far side of the wildness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in the flames of fire from within. Moses saw that through the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought I will go over and see this strange sight–why the bush does not burn up. When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush. Moses! Moses! and Moses said “Here I am” Do not come any closer God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. Then he said ” I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. (Exodus 3:1-6) The Lord said to Moses I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. God wanted Moses to go and free his people from the Egyptian, and like so many of us today when God is calling us to do a job, what do we say not me Lord, send someone else. But in the time of Moses God had intending choosing him for this job.
Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they ask me, “What is his name? Then what shall I tell them? God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites, I am has sent me to you. God also said to Moses, Say to the Israelites, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is my name forever, the name you shall call me, from generation to generation. (Exodus 3:13-15)
