The Heart of God for Salvation
Passage: Exodus 1:1-14, Exodus 2:23-25
"Memory Verse for the Week: Exodus 2:23-25
“During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel—and God knew."
Intro: Who remembers what was happening in 1619?
GOD FOR US
How will God keep His promises in the midst of Israel’s slavery?
GOD AGAINST US
Why would God allow His people to be enslaved by Egypt? What does slavery say about Israel?
GOD WITH US
God enters into our deepest brokenness and sin so He could tabernacle with us.
YOU CAN PRAY WITH US...
1. Worship the LORD, for His fulfilling of all His promises, in His time, and according to His plan. Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for calling us out of our slavery and sin to make us His people and dwell in our midst.
2. How have you lived as if you don’t need to be rescued; or, where have you lost hope of God coming through to rescue you and make you His? Confess your pride and unbelief to God and ask for His help to love and live for Him.
3. Give thanks to Jesus for leaving the perfect community of Father, Son and Holy Spirit to act as our mediator, to call us out of slavery to sin, and to make us His people.
4. Who do you know that has lost hope of God’s rescue, or doesn’t even believe they need to be rescued? Pray for them, asking Holy Spirit to soften their hearts and help them see the beauty of Jesus and trust in Him.
5. Ask Holy Spirit to work into your heart His hope, patience and faith, trusting that He has every single detail in His hands, and equipping you to serve Him wherever He’s called you.
