Sermon Title: The God Of The Burning Bush Still Speaks

Scripture: Exodus 3:1–10

 

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series from Exodus. He outlined the profound truths we learn about God from His interactions with Moses in the wilderness. Specifically, we looked at:

  • The God Who Meets Us In Our Wilderness 
  • The God Who Is Self-Sufficient
    • Our Greatest Need Is A God Who Doesn’t Need Us.
    • Only A God Who Doesn’t Need Us Is Worthy Of Our Worship.
    • Because God Doesn’t Need Us We Are Free To Trust Him. 

Going Deeper:      

  1. Pastor David shared that how we answer the question, “Who is God?” fundamentally shapes every aspect of our lives. How would you answer this question?
  2. This passage shows us that God sees us; God knows us intimately; and God comes to us in our wilderness. What wilderness and/or captivity do you find yourself in today? How has God met you there?
  3. As the bush was burning, it did not need fuel, and it was not consumed, because God is completely self-sufficient. As you go about your work, school, and family responsibilities how are you encouraged by knowing that God doesn’t need you? How will that truth influence your actions and words this week? 

Additional Discovery: 

 

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, and man's spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has even been greater than its idea of God...We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God. This is true not only of the individual Christian, but of the company of Christians that composes the Church. Always the most revealing thing about the Church is her idea of God.”

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  ~ Ephesians 3:20–21
