2019 Bible Reading Plan Part 3: Exodus 1-18
This next section of Bible reading – The Exodus from Egypt – is truly one of the most dynamic and exciting portions of the whole Bible. We have dramatic confrontations with God in the wilderness when a burning bush refuses to be consumed and a voice speaks from the bush. We have powerful human leaders trying to impose their will on others by enslaving them and using them for profit and a God who goes head to head with such corrupt and powerful rulers and wins big time. We have clueless people being delivered by God, trying to follow Him, but not sure what to believe or do. And we get introduced to a God who feeds a couple million people with mystery food from heaven, gives them water in the desert, and meets with them to create a whole different culture than has ever existed on the planet before.
This is exciting stuff. And just think, God is doing the same with us today. He is delivering us from the things that try and control us and profit from us. He provides for us in the middle of a corrupt culture, and He is trying to create through us a culture that has never existed before on the earth.
This is good.
