Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

The Red Sea (Day 21/365)

Day 21: Exodus 13-15

Main People:
Moses, Aaron, Pharaoh, Israelites, Egyptians

Key Points:
      *We have traditions in churches/life so our kids will ask what they mean and we can explain about God to them and why we do the traditions.

*Moses took Joseph’s bones with him to fulfill Joseph’s wishes over 400 years prior.

*Miriam (Moses/Aaron’s sister) was a prophet.

*God wants you to pray and listen to him. But when it all is said and done it’s up to you to do something. (Ex. 14:15). This will be in Joshua too.

*God led them as a cloud during the day and a ball of fire at night.

*God parted the Red Sea so the Egyptians would know there was only ONE God (him) and for the Israelites to remember it. Once they “saw” they believed and put their faith in God. It’s easy to judge them for that, but are we so different?

Verses that Jumped Out at Me:
15:26—“He (God) said, “If you will listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I send on the Egyptians for I am the Lord who heals you.”

What instrument did Miriam play and who did she lead?

Tomorrow’s Reading: Exodus 16-18
