Sermon Idea Number - 2 -

Suggested Titles:

What God Does
Who is God
God is not ignorant

Passage:

Exodus 3

Passage Overview – some highlights:

The start of this passage is where God calls Moses at the Burning Bush. Since God does much of the speaking, it is interesting to note how God defines the nature of who God is. That is, it is not Moses describing God, it is God describing God. You could perhaps preach more than one sermon on this passage one week – and the next. One would use the ideas found here – the second sermon could talk about the fact that Moses responds to God’s call and does what God tells him to do. He sets an example for us in responding to God’s call in spite of his doubts and fears. But this sermon focuses more on these issues:

Important Specific Concepts:

God of ancestors (not some new or unknown God)
God who keeps promises
God who sees (not blind) misery
God who hears (not deaf) cries
God who knows (not ignore-ant) suffering
God who comes down
God who sends

Ideas for Illustrations:

The difference between knowing about Disneyworld and “going down” to Disneyworld to see, hear and know it personally.

Getting involved in any project too big for yourself and needing to ask someone else to help you finish the task.

God’s constant care for those who cry and suffer in the world.


Ideas for Wrapping Up - Response - Call:


How might God be sending us?

How can we hear and see like God does?

What area of the world might God be “know” today because he does not ignore the world?

How can we join God where God is?

When I preached this sermon, last week, I showed a two minute clip of The Prince of Egypt. It helped my congration "picture" the scene.
