Remember and celebrate! Feast of Passover: Remembering and Celebrating God as Deliverer
Where we're headed next time
Big Idea: God is the one true God.
Moses leads: Exodus 3—12; 13v17; 15, God works through Moses to perform powerful miracles that prove He is the one true God.
Did you know?
Many scholars believe the plagues were directly attacking the ancient Egyptian gods.
In the Bible, even the number of plagues was significant. To the Israelites, the number 10 represented wholeness and completion. For instance, the Ten Commandments are the complete, divine perfection of the Law.
By sending 10 plagues, God was stating the Egyptians were completely plagued and completely judged. He was demonstrating His total power as the one true God.
Connect as a family
Circle up your family and have everyone take off their shoes while reading this part of The Big God Story. Read the biblical account of Moses and the burning bush in Exodus 3:1–6. After you’ve read, ask your children to tell you their favorite part of this passage, and then share your favorite part. Ask what they would’ve thought if they saw a burning bush and heard God speak to them. Share with them that holy means set apart, sacred, and separate from others.
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:
What made the bush that Moses saw so special?
Whose voice did Moses hear coming from the bush?
How can you know that God is the one true God?
These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God Is with Us into your everyday life as a family.
A blessing can be a spoken prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words of encouragement and guidance over your child.
A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), may you trust in the one true God with all your heart.
