In the Midst of this Land (Worship Service, June 18th, 2017)

Title: In the Midst of this Land

Passage: Exodus 8:20 – 9:12

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 18th, 2017

Just as the first plague set the tone for the first three plagues, the fourth plague gives the theme of the second set of plagues. Back in 7:17, God said, By this you shall know that I am Yahweh. Now, in the 4th plague, But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, … that you may know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth. When Egypt is affected and Goshen isn’t, God will show convincingly that he, Yahweh, Israel’s God, is the one in the midst of the land of Egypt, performing these wonders of judgment. Thereby the 4th – 6th plagues take God’s purpose in the first three plagues and amplify it. Still, the foundational purpose of the plagues is that men know that Yahweh is God. Since he is God, we ought to love and obey him. Let’s look more closely at these plagues and see how God glorifies himself in them.

Frogs, Gnats, & More (Worship Service, June 11th, 2017)

Title: Frogs, Gnats, & More

Passage: Exodus 8:1 – 9:12

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 11th, 2017

Last week we saw how the plagues are for the glory of God. The purpose of the first set of plagues is grounded in the purpose of the first, the turning of the Nile to blood. The Lord’s purpose in this plague is plain: by this you shall know that I am the LORD. In the first three plagues, God shows Pharaoh and the Egyptians that he, the God of the Hebrews, is truly God. As the plagues develop, he’ll amplify this message. Any man who takes up his Scripture and reads the Exodus account of the plagues ought to confess that Yahweh is God. There are several ways God glorifies himself in our passage.

Unlikely Servants (Worship Service, May 14th, 2017)

Title: Unlikely Servants

Passage: Exodus 6:9-30

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 14th, 2017

After the response of Israel to the Lord’s message through Moses in v 9, the passage has a chiastic or x-like pattern in vv 10-30. Moses is the focus in vv 10-12. Then Moses and Aaron in v 13. Next the genealogy of Moses and Aaron in vv 14-25, followed by a return to Aaron and Moses in vv 26-27, and finally, Moses again in vv 28-30. The passage confirms the truths of vv 1-8, and shows that the Exodus is ultimately the Lord’s work. The Lord is the one who delivers his people. Yes, God uses servants, but he is the one who gets the glory. The primary point of this sermon this morning is that the Lord accomplishes his purposes no matter what.

Passage: Exodus 5:22 – 6:9

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

The first part of Exodus 6 is the Lord’s answer to Moses’s prayer at the end of ch 5. The Scripture before us lifts up God’s purpose to bring glory to himself through the redemption of Israel from Egypt. The passage has five ways God glorifies himself. We looked at two last week.
