Moses and the Parting of the Red Sea

(15)

Sermon shared by Martin Dale

March 2007
Summary: What can we learn from Moses and the Parting of the Red Sea today in our lives
Denomination: Anglican
Audience: General adults
the end of the tunnel – but God asksus to trust Him as we set out – one step at a time

The question is this : Are we prepared to move forward with Christ or will we constantly look back - hankering – as the Israelites did – for the life back in Egypt?

There is one thing we cannot do and that is to stand on the sidelines and watch

Following Christ is all about our stepping forward in faith.
I wonder how the Israelites felt as they saw the sea massed up either side of them as they went through.

Did they wonder if the ground was hard enough to take them as they passed through.

Did they wonder if they would sink into the mud?

Did they wonder if the sea really would stay “rolled up” until they got through.

Did they wonder – if the sea is rolled up for us – will it remain rolled up for the Egyptians?

The only way to find out the answer to their questions was the FIRST step.

The more we walk with the Lord in our daily lives, the more time we spend in his presence - the less daunting the prospect of crossing over OUR Red Sea will become.

Why

Because as we get to know the character of God more – we will come to realise how utterly dependable – however daunting the problems we have before us

Being a Christian isn’t one off step of faith – it is a lifetime commitment to follow Jesus.

St Paul at the end of his life said this :

“I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race and have remained faithful” (2 Tim 4:7)

I wonder if I will be able to say that when my time on earth comes to an end?
