The human experience is woven into the tapestry of God’s story. It is important for us to see that our lives are a part of the story God has been writing since the foundation of the world. This week we see that Moses was the man God chose to lead his people out of slavery in Egypt. Moses’ story points forward to Jesus, who would set God’s people free from slavery to sin by His sin-atoning sacrifice on the cross. We must see that our lives, like Moses, are a part of God’s redemptive story. If you are a Christian, God has called you to a similar task as he called Moses to— herald the good news that Jesus came to set sinners free.
- How have you seen the sovereign hand of God at work in your life?
- Do you believe God has put you in this city, your job, and your sphere of influence for a purpose? Why or why not? Discuss what specific purpose you believe He has your there for.
- Moses didn’t allow fear of the king, even though he was actually afraid, to keep him from obedience to God. Discuss any fears you personally have when it comes to obeying the great commission (see Matthew 28:18-20).
- God saves, not by how much faith we have, but on whom we place our faith in, namely Jesus. Does this bring you comfort? Why or why not?
- Discuss ways you plan to personally share this great news this week.
Father in heaven,
Thank you for sending Jesus to leave the comforts of heaven to come and die for our sins and save us from death. Not only did Jesus save us from death, he also saved us so we could witness about him. Please give us power through your Spirit to boldly proclaim the gospel to those in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, and city—even to the ends of the earth. We pray this in Jesus’ name.
