Letting Others Know (Exodus 13)

 You shall tell your son on that day, ‘It is because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.’  Exodus 13:8

I picture them filled with anticipation getting on the plane and heading out to a place where they have never been.  Their one unified desire was to go where others have never heard to tell them of the good news of Jesus Christ.  When they arrive two days later, one would expect them to be ready to crash, but no, this group had their minds set to let others know.

When Moses led 2 million people out of Egypt, did they know what God intended for them?  They had been taught since the days of Abraham, God was going to take them to the Promised Land.  But there was more, God intended for them to be a light to the other people groups of the world.

One of the ways the nation would do this was in keeping the Feasts. These feast were reminders of what God had done and opportunities to let others know who God was and what He had done and what He was doing.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was a week long celebration of what had just happened in Exodus 6-12.  As they held the feast, they would tell the story of God’s deliverance and God’s being their Passover Lamb.

Question:  Do you have built in daily reminders of who God is and do you have built in daily processes that place you in front of others so that they will know about your God?

Brothers and sisters, God has put in daily reminders.  All we have to do is to build them into our daily lives:

  • God has given us the Word to study each and every day.  Build it into your daily life, II Tim. 2:15.
  • God has given us prayer so that we can communicate with God every day.  Build it into your daily life, Matt. 6:6-9.
  • God has given you a voice so that you can share Him every day.  Build it into you daily life, I Peter 3:15.
  • God has given you His church so that you can weekly gather with other people to remember. Build it into your daily life, Hebrews 10:25.

Brothers and sisters, without these things being built into our lives we will find ourselves at a drift from our purpose and we will find ourselves dead in the water of urgency.

The reason we exist is to love God and to make disciples of all people.
