Exodus: God the Deliverer – Rev Lucy Burden

Rescue plan, revelation, rejection, release

In this sermon we start to see the oppression of the Israelite people in the years following the story of Joseph.  Once a new King takes charge of Egypt he fears the growing number of Israelites and puts plans in place to restrict their growth.  In this dark situation, we start to see God’s rescue plan emerge.  The book of Exodus speaks of God’s concern for the Israelites and we see from this that their cries have been heard.  

In this sermon Rev Lucy reveals the role of Moses in the deliverance of the Israelites and how the covenant made with Abraham is fulfilled.  We see Moses reaction to the plan that God reveals to him, and we see how the assurance of God’s presence leads Moses to act in faith.
