    The Call of Moses

    The Call of Moses

    Set Apart – The Call of Moses

    Exodus 3-4 4/11/21

    -In what way is God calling you to obedience, but you are afraid?

    Read Exodus 3:1-12a

    Let’s summarize this really quick.

    God sees the suffering of the Israelites.
    Moses also know about their suffering.
    God chooses Moses to be part of His plan to rescue them and pave the way for Christ.
    Moses: “Who am I?” His mistake was assuming that this has anything to do with him. It’s not about you! If you want to find your purpose, quit trying to find yourself. Find God.
    God: I am God and I’ll be with you.

    This should be Enough said!

    God communicates the plan and the provision.

    That’s a lot. He doesn’t always do that. Sometimes he just says, “Obey.” But he goes above and beyond here.

    If God asks you to do something, He always has in mind the plan and provision, even if you don’t.

    Either way, Obey.

    Exodus 4 - a chapter of Excuses

    At their very best, Abraham, Moses, and David point us to the one who is perfect.

    Jesus was a greater Moses. Don’t miss the parallels.

    They both are born when a king is trying to kill them.
    Both have faithful, courageous mothers.
    Moses fled Egypt into exile. Jesus fled to Egypt.
    Both face a time of testing in the wilderness.
    Moses goes up on a mountain to receive the Law. Jesus goes on a mountain to give the Law.
    Moses introduces the Passover lamb; Jesus is the Passover Lamb.

    4/4 Sermon Notes
    Brian Jennings
    Sermon Notes

    List some of the emotions on that first Easter morning.

    Why did Mary Magdalene assume the body was stolen?

    Why does John’s inclusion of this actually give credibility to the text?

    What’s the significance of John calling himself, “Beloved,” or “The disciple whom Jesus loved?”

    What’s the connection between living and loving? (For extra, see John 15:13 and Galatians 2:20.)

    Discuss: “Jesus doesn’t return from the grave with vengeance but with love.”

    Have you responded to God’s life and God’s love?

    Holiness
    3/28 Sermon Notes
    Brian Jennings

    Leviticus 11:45 I am the Lord, who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy.

    We’ll never know who we are until we know who God is.

    I am the Lord,

    who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God;

    therefore be holy, because I am holy.

    Our greatest goal is not happiness, but holiness.

    Have you found specific tasks for which God has set you apart?

    Extra: Look up every time God says, “I am the Lord,” in the book of Leviticus and write down what you learn. (BibleGateway.com is an easy way to do this.)

    Discussion Qs
    · What has God done for you?
    · What does it mean to be holy?
    · Why do we struggle with holiness?
    · How will you prioritize holiness?
    · Have you found specific tasks for which God has set you apart?

    Discussion Questions

    1. Answer the question “who are you?” How much of your answer is about you as an individual, and how much is about the relationships that form you.
    2. What are some we could recognize and live out through our Christian community in the church? How could that change our experience with each other and with God?
    3. What are some “normal” activities that reveal God’s nature in us? Choose one that you will intentionally recognize as a spiritual activity for at least one day.
    4. What one simple act could you practice this week to “rule” God’s creation as his steward in this world.
