God Delivers: Are You Ready for Change?

Exodus 1:1-22

 1. Read Exodus 1:1-22. List the changes the nation of Israel was experiencing in this chapter. Do you believe these changes were constructive or detrimental occurrences for the Israelites?

2. Ask God to reveal any action, attitude or relationship that needs to change in your life.

3. Why do you think God allows difficult situations to come into the lives of those whom He loves?

4. What does the incident with the midwives say to us about current debates over abortion?

5. Pray for the Elder Team, Staff and congregation at MCC that in 2017 we will  mature with changes that challenge us to Love God, Love Others and Make Disciples.

 Preparing for Next Sunday

God Delivers: The Redeemer Responds      

Exodus 2:23–3:22

 1. Read the passages (Exodus 2:23 – 3:22) and ask the Lord to reveal Himself and His truth.

2. HIGHLIGHT a verse or truth that stands out to you and write it out.

3. EXPLAIN the text in your own words to make sure you see the big picture of God’s Story. (Who wrote it and why was it written? To whom it was written? What is the context? How does the text point to the Father, Son or Spirit? What is the text telling us about our new identity as believers in Christ or what we are to be doing?)

4. APPLY a truth from the text to your own life. (Focus on what God is saying to you and what is your act of obedience, confession, praise, giving thanks, etc.)

5. RESPOND in prayer and go apply what God reveals to you from the Scriptures.
