A Consecrated People (Worship Service, July 8th, 2018)

Title: A Consecrated People

Passage: Exodus 22:16-31

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 8th, 2018

This morning, we see several times where Yahweh demands that his people be like himself, the God of the covenant. This is our focus on as we look at the Scriptures this morning, to notice the link between Israel’s Law and God’s will that his people be like him. For the purposes of structure, I’ve divided our text into three different ideas.

Covenant Restitution (Worship Service, July 1st, 2018)

Title: Covenant Restitution

Passage: Exodus 21:33-22:15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 1st, 2018

The passage before us this morning is in the middle of what Ex 21:1 calls the rules of God’s covenant with Israel. After God spoke the Decalogue to Israel from Sinai, Israel pleaded with Moses that he be their mediator so that they no longer had to listen to God. Following laws about altars, Ex 21:1 introduces the long section we are now in. This morning, we consider more of these rules. In particular, we will look at God’s laws concerning restitution

Slaves, Murder, and The Covenant, Part 2 (Worship Service, June 17th, 2018)

Title: Slaves, Murder, and The Covenant, Part 2

Passage: Exodus 21:1-32 Part II

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 17th, 2018

It is fitting that the Lord begins his rules in the Law with slavery and then murder. He wants Israel not to be like Egypt, a nation that brutally enslaves and murders, but like himself, a God who protects human dignity and life. That’s the main point of chapter 21. God’s people must preserve dignity and life as God does.

Slaves, Murder, and The Covenant, Part 1 (Worship Service, June 10th, 2018)

Title: Slaves, Murder, and The Covenant, Part 1

Passage: Exodus 21:1-32

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 10th, 2018

Given how lowly people viewed slaves, it’s remarkable how God’s Law begins speaking to this issue. By introducing his Law with remarks about slaves, God reminds his people that he is a God who hears the cry of those oppressed by slavery. He rescued them from slavery. He begins with laws about slavery to bring glory to himself before Israel in reminding them of his great act of redemption. And he begins with slavery so that Israel’s own treatment of slaves will be Yahweh-like rather than Egypt like. Similarly, with the laws about murder, we recall Egypt’s blood-thirsty murder of the Hebrews. The point of ch 21 is this: God’s people must preserve dignity and life as God does.

The People Stood Far Off (Worship Service, June 3rd, 2018)

Title: The People Stood Far Off

Passage: Exodus 20:18-26

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 3rd, 2018

As we went through the commandments, we found again and again our need of forgiveness. God’s standards are high and holy. When we measure ourselves against God’s standard, we find that we have missed the mark. We are sinners. The Israelites knew this as well, so they drew away and stood far off. If you have ever felt unworthy to draw near to God, this passage is for you. We sinners must draw near to God. But how?
