Exodus 13:1-16 – When the Israelites emerged from Egypt, God gave them a chance to live again. Jesus has defeated our greatest enemies and set us free to follow Him all the way to the Promised Land.
What Happened to Them
- God’s people could never forget the day that He brought them out (13:1-4).
- God doesn’t leave any of His promises unfulfilled (13:5-7).
- A family’s rhythms should regularly remind them of their redemptive testimonies (13:8-10, 14-16).
- God redeemed what was unclean and made them useful for His purposes (13:11-13).
What Can Happen for You
- Jesus is the firstborn son of God (Col. 1:15), consecrated for our redemption (Luke 2:22-24).
- All people are enslaved to sin (John 8:34; Rom. 6:6) and unable to free themselves on their own.
- God defeated our devilish ruler (Eph. 2:2; Col. 2:15) by the sacrifice of His Son (1 John 3:8).
- By trusting in Jesus as our substitute, we are saved (John 3:16; Rom. 5:8).
- Through baptism, we declare publicly that we who once were as good as dead are very much alive (Rom. 6:4).
- We now journey toward the Promised Land (James 1:12) as redeemed people learning how to follow God’s instructions (1 John 5:3).
Let today be the day you remember how Jesus brought you out.
