God Sends Plagues Against Egypt - Exodus 7:14-10:29
The word of the Lord is sure.
Yesterday morning our kiddos learned:
1. God cannot be stopped
2. Pharoah's heart continues to be hard
3. God means what he says, whether blessing or judgment
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Read Hebrews 3:4-6.
Notice how these verses compare Moses to Jesus. Once again we see that the life of Moses points to the life of Jesus. Moses led his people and taught them. As we will see later, he also delivered them from bondage. In this way, Moses' life illustrates and proclaims the coming Savior. Just as Moses was a faithful deliverer, so Christ is a faithful deliverer and redeemer.
In the home
We are on week 30 which starts on page 197 in the Long Story Short devotional. We all have a story but our stories won't ever find true fulfillment unless we become a part of God's redemptive story. Will you pass on the redemptive story this week and invite your family to live in light of what Jesus has done for us?
If I had one good sit down with my family to open up the bible I would focus on day 3. These are the questions you'll find:
- When God was saving Israel, who was he thinking about?
- Since we know God is powerful enough, why didn't He use one big plague to force the Egyptians to let his people go?
- Why did God include this story in the bible?
Pray about it! Thank God for including us in His story of redemption.
