Bible Study - DELIVERANCE: A Basket Case

Sermon-Based Bible Study – February 9, 2020
  1. What is something God has done for you that you are thankful for or are celebrating? How have you experienced his faithfulness and goodness this week?

  2. Where are you experiencing stress, anxiety or fear? How would you like to see God move in your life or in the life of someone close to you?

  3. What did you hear in this week’s sermon that was new or particularly interesting? Did anything stand out to you as puzzling or troubling?

  4. Read Exodus 2:1-10. There are a few different characters in view. What does the text tell us about their actions and their decisions?
    • Read Hebrews 11:23. Moses’s parents are commended for their faith. What does this tell us about their perspective and their commitment to God?
    • Jochabed (Moses’s mother) makes a plan and takes a step of faith. What does this teach us about the purposes of God and our responsibility to make plans? How can these two things both be true?
    • We are told that Moses’s parents were not afraid of the king’s edict (Heb 11:23). What does this say about God and what does this say about Pharaoh?

  5. As we try to make application in our lives, Chris mentioned a few things for us to consider:
    • The story of Moses’s deliverance involves God’s provision of family – biological, adoptive, and spiritual family. How has God used your family to support you in times of need or hardship? Is there anyone in your family or in the church that needs your support right now?
    • God’s provision can come through some unexpected people or in unexpected ways. How might God be calling you to advocate for someone in need? How has God gifted you to serve those around you?

  6. How is God “drawing you out” right now? How is the Spirit of God at work to change your heart and your life?
