Sermons about Red Sea
Today we concluded our Defining Moments series by looking at the life of Moses and how we should not use our limitations as excuses to keep us from doing God's Will.
Sermon on Exodus 14 by Pastor Dan Hendley.
“Between a rock and a hard place” is a phrase we use to describe an impossible situation, or at least a very hard choice. Most of us don’t like to be in those kinds of places. We feel helpless and hopeless. We begin to try everything. We finally give up, believing our hope for deliverance has to come from somewhere else. Fear creeps in, the fear that nothing can help this. Whatever we do, it will turn out bad. And then the complaining starts. Today we follow the Israelites into some tough times that erupted into fear and complaining. It’s not a rock and a hard place. It’s worse. It’s an army and the sea. But it was all by God’s direction, which may seem strange at first thought. Today we see that the plan of God does not always result in the easiest, most direct way to our goal. God rather chooses the path that accomplishes his purpose, and brings his people along with his promises.
Keep your eye on the cross and on the word of God. The world wants us to focus on anything but God. The world wants us to feel trapped, to feel that God doesn't really care about us. When the children of Israel were trapped up against the Red sea, they took their eyes off God and were in despair. Moses told them, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord." Keep your eye on God.
The Crossing explores the exodus of the Israelites and looks at what God had in mind for them as their "BIg Picture" as He tells them to "turn back and camp" by the Rea Sea.
The Crossing of the Red Sea is more than a childhood story. It's more than a miraculous story of God's provision. The implications run much deeper for anyone who claims to be saved. This story is a paradigm of salvation itself, complete with a mediator, and a Way from death to life. Are we saved? Have we changed? And are we small enough?
