TiO 15 – Exodus – Complaining and Choosing
The Main Idea
From Exodus chapters 17-22, Pastor Carolyn pulled out two incidents: complaining in the desert and God’s declaration to Israel that they were special to him. And God’s actions rescued the people and showed them that he truly loved them and had come to rescue them.
Warm Up Questions: (Choose 1 or 2)
Q1: What do you tend to complain about?
Q2: Who do you tend to complain to?
Q3: When do you tend to complain most?
Read the scripture aloud: Exodus 19:3-5
Then Moses went up to God; the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the Israelites: You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now therefore, if you obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession out of all the peoples.
Q1: Have you experienced times when God rescued you from your circumstance?
Q2: What does it mean for you to be a treasured possession to God?
Pray that God will remind you from day to day of the special place that you have in his heart.
