Lessons for Exodus
God appeared to the Israelites in clouds and fire and in
the tabernacle. Why doesn’t He do this today?
“While the cat is away, the mice will play.” Moses leaves for a time and the people quickly turn away from God, bowing down to a calf instead of the One who rescued them. What is God’s response?
God promised to bring His people out of Egypt and He does it. Even when they are doubting and fearful. He even sets up a “memorial event” to help them remember His care for them. How do you recall God’s care for you?

became slaves. What will God do?
