Sermons on Exodus

Be Content

In the final two commandments, God explains that we need to be content with what we have: You shall not covet your neighbor’s house and You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. We often look at the houses and material possessions around us and want what we don’t have. But nothing on Earth will fulfill us. True contentment comes only from God. Scripture: Philippians…

Be Honest

God tells us the importance of honesty through the Eighth Commandment: You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. When we tell lies about others or act in other ways to hurt their reputation, we are not representing Christ and honoring God. Instead, we share Jesus with others when we defend them and speak well of them in our communities. Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:16

Have Integrity

Through the Seventh Commandment, God tells us: You shall not steal. When we steal from others or take in another dishonest way, we are not only harming our communities; we are harming our relationship with God. To show love to others and God, we can serve in our communities to make improvements and protect those who live there. Scripture: Luke 12:15 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:15

Demonstrate Purity and Faithfulness

The Sixth Commandment directs: You shall not commit adultery. God created sex as a gift to be shared within a marriage, but our sinful desires often lead us to explore this gift in impure and unfaithful ways. When we obey this commandment, we are demonstrating love and respect not only to our spouses, but to ourselves and to God. Out of love for us, God leads us to live lives of purity and faithfulness. Scripture: Ephesians 5:1-4 Sermon Text: Exodus…

Help and Support Others

In the Fifth Commandment, God tells us: You shall not murder. Jesus expands this to include those thoughts, attitudes, and actions towards others which are done with ill intent. When we help and support our neighbors in every physical need, we are fearing and loving God. Through this commandment, God teaches us to treat all people as His children. Scripture: Luke 10:25-37 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:13

Honor Those in Authority

The Fourth Commandment directs us in how to treat our parents: Honor your father and your mother. Our sinful nature often leads us to disrespecting our parents and other authority figures. But God wants us to serve, obey, and love those He puts in authority over us. All parents, governments, bosses, and other leaders were put in position by God. Scripture: Luke 10:24-25, Romans 13:7 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:12

Honor God

The Second and Third Commandments guide us to honor God with our words and our time: You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God and Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Although we’re made new through Jesus, our words and actions don’t always show honor and respect to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God teaches us through these Commandments how to use His name in love and respect and honor Him through setting aside…

Worship the One True God

The First Commandment God gives us is this: You shall have no other gods. God knows our hearts tend to stray away from Him. Because of sin, we find ourselves elevating things like money, careers, and talents to the position that only God can hold in our lives. Through this Commandment, God teaches us that we should fear, love, and trust Him above all other things. Scripture: Matthew 22:37, Luke 1:15-21 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:3-6

God Provides for Us

There is so much uncertainty in our world right now that makes it difficult to see how God provides for ourselves. We might wonder what will happen with our jobs, our schools, or our businesses. But even in the middle of all these restrictions, God will provide our daily bread. The same God who gave the Israelites daily manna will provide for our daily needs. Sermon Text: Exodus 16

Imitating God: Absurd Generosity

Absurd Generosity Imagine the world around you without God. Having a hard time doing this? That’s because it’s impossible. In this introduction to the series, we’ll recognize the absurd generosity that God shows to us, which sets the groundwork for why we give to others. We are called to be generous because our Father in Heaven spares nothing for our good. God is the first and most generous giver. Scripture: Malachi 3:6-12 Sermon Text: Exodus 34:6-7

Stepping Into the Breach

After just spending time in the very presence of God, Moses comes down Mt. Sinai only to find the Israelites worshiping a golden calf and indulging in pagan revelry. Instead of letting God’s anger burn against the people, Moses steps into the breach and intercedes on their behalf (cf. Psalm 106:19-23) (1st Petition)

What Is God Really Like?

An angry judge, a doting grandfather, an attentive butler—these are all common caricatures of God. What is God really like? Exodus 34:5-7
