You can use some of these in Growth Groups or alone:
Read through Exodus 14 – if you’re with others online, you could take parts – Narrator, God, Pharaoh/Egyptians, Israelites, Moses.
- What do you like or dislike about this story?
- Imagine you are one of the Israelites trapped between Pharaoh and the sea (v10-12). Imagine what you would be sensing (sights, smells, sounds) and feeling. How would you feel about Moses’ answer (v13-14)?
- How do you think Moses felt about the people’s reactions and God’s response (v15-18)?
- If you ever found yourself in a similar situation to Moses or the Israelites, how would you react?
- God repeatedly says in the Bible to people ‘Do not be afraid’, but are there times when it’s right to be afraid? If so, give some examples.
- God is rescuing the Israelite people for their sake, but also for his wider purposes for the world. How much do you feel that being a Christian is about your personal faith or God’s wider purposes?
If you’d like to keep in touch, need some practical help, a prayer, or would like to explore faith a bit more… then just let us know via our Contact Page. We’d love to hear from you.
