The Life of Moses Sermon Series
Sundays in August
During August, we will take a look at the first few chapters of Exodus as we reflect on the life of Moses. Exodus finds the Children of Israel struggling to understand their identity as people of God who are enslaved in Egypt. This family has lived in Egypt for more than 400 years, and having learned the ways of Pharaoh, they serve him. They are ill-equipped to free themselves from their bondage, and to journey to the far off promised land.
God raises up Moses, as a prophet who helps free his people and leads them as they begin their journey. Now, the people serve God rather than Pharaoh, and begin down the path on which they will learn who they are in relation to God.
As a people, they have no skills to set them apart, yet God always gives them what they need to do God’s will, and through them, God accomplishes great things. It is a story of a people beginning a journey in which God provides for their needs.
As believers, we still take journeys like this today. Stepping out, sometimes hesitantly, to follow where God is leading us. Wherever we fall short, God makes up the difference. The Exodus story shows us how God taught the Israelites to live by God’s ways. The lessons learned by them remain important to us today as we strive to live as people of God.
God is working in our church and in our community. Calling us to step out in faith as we continue a journey to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
