 Reviewing This Past Sunday

God Delivers: The Redeemer and His Passover

Exodus 12:1-13

 1. What foods or restaurants bring back memories for you? What are some meals specific to holidays or special occasions?

2. Why do you think God gave Pharaoh notice of the coming plagues? What does this say about His love and compassion?

3. What does the severity of God’s judgment on Egypt say about His holiness and uniqueness as the one true God?

4. Why was it important that the sacrificial lamb be spotless? What did being spotless signify?

5. What is the connection between our worship of the Lamb and our witness of the gospel to others?

6. The blood on the door was a public statement for all to see. How does this influence the way we think of our Christian faith? Baptism?   Daily living?

7. What characteristics should distinguish our home from unbelieving homes? Our lives from the lives of others who do not follow Christ?

 Preparing for Next Sunday

God Delivers: Worthy of Praise

Exodus 13:17-22

 1. Read Exodus 13:17-22 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 & why? 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 how we are to live?)

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, prayer, praise, giving thanks, etc.)

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