Faith and Covenant
Moses is a person that seems larger than life – his accomplishments, leadership, power, and prestige. When we read about him, we often focus on his triumphs. But we can also see his weakness and failures. Moses often doubted his ability to know what to do in the midst of the storm, but he trusted God to lead him. Join us as we look at the life of one of the greatest figures in the Old Testament in our new sermon series Moses: Following God Into the Unknown.

We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:
1. As we looked at the backstory for our study of Moses, we learned that the Hebrew nation was in captivity in Egypt. They had grown in numbers to the place where Pharaoh, the leader of Egypt, made a decree to have any newborn baby boy thrown into the Nile River to keep their population down. Moses’s father and mother, Amram and Jochebed, were faced with an impossible situation – turn their baby boy over to Pharaoh for imminent death or to trust God to protect him. Read Exodus 2:1-10 and think about the faith it took for his parents to act as they did.
2. One of the key points of the message on Sunday was this – “In the most difficult times, God is there.” Certainly, He was there in challenges during Moses’s early life. How about you? When has God been present during the difficult times in your life?
3. In our study of the life of Moses, we will learn of some spectacular things God did through him. But it wasn’t because Moses was a superhero. He didn’t have any special abilities and had many faults in his character. And yet, God still chose to use him. Have you ever felt that you were unqualified or unworthy to be used by God? What can we learn from the life of Moses?
4. Moses grew up in a royal household. It was a household of influence, education, and wealth. The Egyptian mindset and culture were instilled in him, and yet he never forgot his Hebrew roots. This was because at an early age, his parents instilled basic tenets of the faith in him. Parents – what inspiration can you glean from this?
