Sermon: The Hands that Secure Our Victory
Exodus 17.8-16: As we follow Israel on their wilderness journey, we've watched them encounter the hardship of thirst, of hunger, and now the threat of enemies. This is wilderness life. It is our life as we journey toward the promised kingdom. The enemy is real - we must not be naive. We must be ready to hear God's call to engage with the gospel of grace, truth, and love.

    Sermon: God’s Presence in Our Thirst
    Exodus 17.1-7: The wilderness is a place of thirst. But to understand this passage, we must see the interaction between physical thirst and soul thirst. At the depth of our soul, we are thirsty for the presence of God - of connection to our Creator. In response, God stands among them, giving them water for their body and water for their soul.

    Sermon: Daily Trust
    Exodus 16: As Israel is led into the wilderness, the fight begins against the slavery from within. The slavery from without has been dealt with in God's triumph over Pharaoh. Now, the battle for the souls of Israel begins. This begins with learning to trust God and his daily provision. Like Israel, this is our battle too. Daily trust in the Lord and his provision in Jesus Christ.

    Sermon: Stepping Forward
    Exodus 15.19-27: After the exuberance of redemption, the wilderness looms. Israel is brought to the path of discipleship, of the need to trust in the mercy and grace of God. It is in him that life in all its challenge is brought from bitterness to sweetness. For us as Christians, it is Christ who transforms us to walk with confidence and the sure hope of an eternal oasis of rest.

    Sermon: Encountering the Waters of Life
    Exodus 13.17-14.31: The climactic story of the Exodus narrative is the Red Sea crossing - the Old Testament's resurrection story. As Israel goes through the waters of death to life on the other side, so to do we in Christ as he conquers the grave. Easter is a day of victory, but it is a victory that goes through death. Praise God that Jesus has gone before and leads us down the path to victory.

    Sermon: Encountering the Darkness
    Exodus 10.21-29: God brings the darkness to show Pharaoh he cannot control the creational order. He is not the king.

He went through the darkness and rose in light, so that his light will forever be with us.

    Sermon: The Threat of Chaos
    Exodus 9.13-35: The Lord brings chaotic destruction to show Pharaoh he cannot control what he desires to control. In this, he draws his people to his grace and mercy, working to prompt in them a trust that he is fighting for them and will overcome all that threatens.
