Sermons on Exodus
Creating a rhythm between work and rest is important. However, we must be sure that we do not confuse “rest” with “leisure.” We can be just as out of balance by not working enough as we can by not resting enough. Sometimes the challenge is trusting God with our rest during the time of harvest.
Our culture is 24/7 pace; it doesn’t work. We are designed to have margin. Declare freedom from this slavery and bring the Sabbath into your life and make it a day of joy. Be still and know that I am God.
God’s names reveal various aspects of His character. This week we study God’s most personal name: the name Yahweh, meaning “I AM.”
It is good to ask questions, they help us understand ourselves better. When God asks questions it helps us know ourselves better and it helps us know Him better. When the Israelites were trapped between the Red Sea and the Egyptian army God asked Moses, “Why do you cry out to me … go forward.” Sometimes that is what we need to here. Have faith, trust in Him and move forward.
It isn’t really about being kind, it is about being transformed into kindness. The fruit of the spirit are Gods traits. They develop together. Put on Jesus yoke of kindness and be transformed.
