The Story: Deliverance

Chapter 4 of The Story

In this chapter, God takes center stage.

1. Understand God's Passion
Exodus 3:7-8
Deuteronomy 7:7-9
Titus 2:4-5
God was concerned about the abuse of the Isrealites.
God's motive is love
God is keeping his covenant of love

2. Understand God's passover
Exodus 12:12-13
John 1:29
1 Corinthians 5:7

3. Understand God's power
Exodus 14:29-31
Exodus 15:1-5
The crossing of the Red Sea
God's power is incredible
If God can handle the Red Sea, he can handle our troubles.

4. Understand God's provision
Exodus 16:2-3
Hebrews 13:5-6
Manna and quail
We want to go back to Egypt
Only 2 1/2 months after the crossing

"We will remember...the work of your hands.
We will stop...and give you praise
For great is your faithfulness"

What's the Big Idea?
God is in the business of delivering his people.

Christianity's Greatest Turning Point:
John 3:16
For God so loved the world )PASSION)
That he gave his one and only son (PASSOVER)
That whoever believes in him shall not perish (POWER)
But have eternal life (PROVISION)
