Exodus 15:1-21 From Slavery to Salvation: The Song of Salvation

Summing Up
Today we are wrapping up our series on the first half of the book of Exodus. Since Easter, we have been following the life of Moses. From his time as a baby, floating in a basket in the Nile; to his time in the desert, on the run from Egyptian Authorities; to his confrontations with Pharaoh and the outpourings of plagues; to the climactic moment, when Moses raised his staff and the waters parted and Israel walked through the Red Sea on dry ground.

Moses in the Comics
I still subscribe to the daily paper. I know, you can get it online. Print media is dead. All of that. But I still like to pick my paper up in the morning and get newspaper ink on my fingers as I read it. And one of the main reasons I still prefer the actual paper is for the comics. I do not consider the paper read until I have read the comics page.

And on Monday, this was what Mother Goose and Grimm ran for a comic:

Exodus 12:1-13:16 From Slavery to Salvation: Rescue and Remembrance

History and Instruction
Exodus 12 and 13 are a curious mix of history and instruction. They continue the story that we have been looking at for the last couple of months, the story of Israel’s deliverance from Egypt. In fact, it is in chapter 12 that we get the actual Exodus itself. This is the part of the Bible where the people make their exit from Egypt. They are getting out today.

When the Right Thing to Do Gets Bad Results
Ben ran the numbers again. There was no doubt about it. The other members of the sales team were padding their invoices. They were overcharging customers and padding their commissions in the process.

Pastor Russell’s Guide to Choosing a Baby Name
Naming a child is a tremendous responsibility. When parents choose a name for a newborn child they are choosing a word that child will hear for the rest of his or her life, a word which will come to be associated with that child, a word which—in some ways—may shape that child’s destiny. So, if you are expecting a child and you are in the process of choosing potential names… no pressure or anything.

Exodus 1:1-2:10 From Slavery to Salvation: When all is Bleak

Today we are beginning a new series on the book of Exodus. My plan is to spend about three months—April through June—on this series. I’m hoping we’ll be able to get through the Red Sea Crossing, from Exodus 1 through Exodus 15 in the next 12 or so weeks. Then we’ll take a break and do a different series. And then we’ll come back to Exodus and do a series specifically on the 10 Commandments.
