Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and so does our emphasis on Moses’ book called Exodus. In it, Moses asks Pharaoh to let God’s people go seven times (Ex. 5:1; 7:16; 8:1, 20; 9:1; 10:3) and Pharaoh finally does it! When he does, God’s salvation is so amazing that the event becomes the Gospel of the Old Testament. Israel’s Scriptures mention the exodus 125 times!
Throughout the book of Exodus, God reveals who He is through his absence and his presence, through his silence and his speech, through his wrath and his mercy, and through his judgment and his amazing grace. In doing so, the book paints a beautiful portrait of Jesus.
Over the next 40 days, as we journey through Exodus together, some tools will be provided to help enrich this journey. In addition to our Sunday morning worship services, here’s what you can look forward to:
1) Lenten Devotional - “I Have Heard the Cries of My People”
Written by Reed Lessing, this will include a daily reading guide through the book of Exodus and a supporting daily devotional. To access materials, please go to our My Church app or contact the Church Office.
2) Lent Connection - Wednesday Nights
Every Wednesday, from March 9th through April 6th, we will gather together in-person at NewLife from 5:15 – 7:00 PM for a deeper look into the book of Exodus.
