Greetings! Below you will find questions which reference the sermon preached on Sunday, May 26th, 2013 at The Park. Each week new questions are posted to track along with the sermons.
The book of Exodus is a great story of redemption, faith, and the sovereignty of God.
I encourage you to begin your group with a time of greeting and introductions. You may choose to reorder the questions below or to write your own. Work hard to facilitate discussion and avoid allowing yourself or another member to speak the entire hour. Ultimately we trust you with leading your group.
- What are some observations you had from this chapter?
- Were there any new insights you learned about the passage from the sermon?
- What theology was present in this chapter?
- What did you learn about God from reading this chapter?
- Once again the people of God are thirsty in the desert, what was their reaction? What were they asking for? Was this are reasonable request, why or why not? What was God’s response? Was this different or the same from Moses’s response?
- God in his guidance and provision of his people in Exodus used both miraculous and human faculties. He guided them with a pillar of fire and used ten plagues to free his people. God also used Moses. Moses struck the rock and held up his hands in Exodus 17 for the deliverance and provision of the people. What does this say about God? What does this say about our role with him?
- Make a few observations about Moses’ posture and actions in the battle against the Amalekites. When have you found yourself in this posture? What is the Lord using you to do in his creation?
