The book of Exodus is an Old Testament story that points to Jesus Christ. It is all about the good news of redemption. God pursues his people who are enslaved and provides a substitute death for them that gives them life, establishing a covenant that promises his presence and protection.
During our 12-week series in Exodus everyone is encouraged to use this plan to read the complete book over the same 12-week period. Some days will require more reading than others, the last 3 weeks requiring entire chapters for each day. The plan will give you the broader context for each week’s Sunday sermon. Let’s dig deep into Exodus and see the God who miraculously delivers his people out of slavery into a new life of freedom to serve him.
As you begin each day:
(1) Find a quiet place where you can be alone. This is important for you to more easily focus as you read and have an awareness of God’s presence. Prepare yourself to listen.
(2) Read the verses taking note of the main points that stand out to you. Whether you have read the verses before or not, approach them with an eagerness to learn something new about God, and about yourself.
(3) Ponder the question. Maybe the question works for you, or maybe you have something else based on the reading that you need to continue to process. Whatever it is, be intentional about thinking and praying about it throughout your day.
