When Moses was born, Israel had become slaves in the land of Egypt, but that wasn’t always the case. Because of a great man named Joseph, the Egyptian pharaoh had basically adopted them into the nation, giving them favored status and the full rights of citizenship. Four hundred years had passed and now Israel had two big problems. There was a pharaoh that had forgotten who Joseph was, but even more importantly, the nation of Israel had forgotten who God was. It was in that situation that a baby was born that changed everything. Israel needed a miracle, and that miracle came in the form of a baby, a baby named Moses. And as we read his story, we will see that three things were true of Moses that are true of you.
We are beginning a study on the life of Moses that we are calling, “Red Sea Moments.” What you are going to see in this series is that in so many ways the life of Moses is your life and my life. Moses is no longer on this earth, but the God of Moses is. The story of Moses is not just what God did for him; it is what God wants to do for you. It is not just about what God did in him, but what He wants to do in you. It is not just about what God did through him; it is what God wants to do through you. The story of Moses is not just “a” story, and it is not just “his” story. God wants it to be your story, too.
