Hey BridgeKids Families!

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and learned about Moses’ birth and calling. Moses was chosen by God to help deliver God’s people out of Egypt. When God’s people cried out to God, He responded and miraculously rescued them from physical captivity. Jesus was a greater Deliverer because He rescued God’s people from captivity to sin. 

Family Devotional

Open your Bibles to Exodus 1:8-2:10, 23-25 & 3:1-4:20. If you have younger kids you can use a story Bible to read it with them. Here we will read the beginning of what God is going to preserve His plan for His people.  We have been learning that nothing can stop God’s perfect plan and that God has a plan to rescue His people from captivity. Help your children connect the Exodus back to Joseph bringing His family into Egypt and forward to Jesus rescuing God’s people from sin. 

Ask the questions:    

  • – Where did Joseph’s family live for many years after he died? (Egypt)
  • – What did Pharaoh command people to do to the Israelite baby boys? ( Throw the Israelite boys into the Nile River, Ex. 1:22)
  • – How did God rescue Moses? (Moses was found by Pharaoh’s daughter and raised as her son; Ex. 2:1-10)
  • – Why did God rescue Moses? (God rescued Moses to deliver His people from captivity, Ex. 3:7-10)
  • -What is God’s plan? God’s plan is to rescues His people from captivity.

Christ Connection: God saved Moses to rescue His people. The calling of Moses points to a greater calling and rescue— the call of Jesus to come to earth to save God’s people from sin. Moses and Jesus both obeyed God’s commands in order to carry out His plan of salvation. Moses delivered God’s people from physical captivity; Jesus delivered God’s people from captivity to sin.
