As we head into the fall, we will begin a new sermon series. This next year, we will be studying the bible’s book of Exodus. Why Exodus, you might ask?
There are many reasons. One reason is that it is time for us to explore an Old Testament book together. And from a discipleship perspective, Exodus is an excellent choice. Why so?
- Exodus is a book about God’s presence with his people.
- Exodus is a book about God’s ability to deliver on all of his promises.
- Exodus teaches about the Passover and God’s power and willingness to save his people.
- Exodus is book about Moses, a true hero of the faith who is a great spiritual example.
- Exodus is a book that reveals God’s extraordinary power over nature.
- Exodus is a book that reveals God’s sovereignty in a fallen, broken, and evil world.
- Exodus is a book that reveals God’s desire to protect his people.
- Exodus is a book that reveals God’s amazing provision for his people.
- Exodus is a book that displays God’s patience and forgiveness towards his people.
- Exodus includes the Ten Commandments, a summary of God’s covenant law with us.
- Exodus teaches how we can relate to a holy God.
- Exodus reveals God’s amazing grace towards us and God’s amazing love for us.
- Exodus helps us understand God’s redemptive plan for all humanity.
In summary, Exodus is a book that includes all of these wonderful discipleship themes and life lessons and so much more. It is truly a great Old Testament book that will complement our recent study of the New Testament’s Book of Acts. So, I invite you to join me on Sunday mornings as together we explore this impacting book in our bibles.
