Title: This is My God
Text: Exodus 15: 1-21
Theme: The Lord is our mighty warrior.
- The Lord __________ Himself to His people in His judgements on Egypt’s gods.
- Pharoah and his administration sought to destroy the children of Abraham
- The Lord was Israel’s warrior in three main ways
- The Lord’s People ___________ in faith-fed praise.
- Their song’s components are a study in God-pleasing worship
- The Lord’s goal in delivering Israel through the judgements was: you shall know that I am the Lord your God.
Questions for Further Reflection:
- How is the Lord our Strength, Song & become our Salvation? In what ways do we testify of Him as Israel did?
- What do the 10 Plagues, the Passover event, the Exodus event tell us about the importance to the Lord that people know Him or at least know of Him? See: Exodus 6:2-8; 7:4-5. Note His success in revealing Himself to Israel, 14:30-31. Note how the Lord directly addressed Pharaoh’s challenge to Him: compare 5:1-3 with 10:1-2. Do you think Pharaoh ever forgot Israel’s God?
- The Lord’s revelation of His glorious Person, attributes & works didn’t go unnoticed in other heathen territories. Note Rahab’s admission to the spies Joshua sent to spy out Jericho: Joshua 2:8-11.
- And you shall know that I am the Lord recurs multiple times in the OT. God brought Israel out of Egypt that they may know Him. He promised and performed a second “exodus” when He brought His people back from captivity in Babylon for the same purpose: Ezekiel 20:40-44.
- In what way was Calvary a “third exodus” & judgment on this world’s gods? See: John 12:31; Colossians 2:13-15. What part do we play in the “that they may know the Lord” mission?
- What does this longing in the Lord’s heart tell us about the importance of evangelism & the testimony of His saving grace in Christ?
