Week Sixteen


the wilderness journey 

Israel’s journey through the Sinai wilderness contains lessons for us, in the journey we are called on to make from “bondage” to the land of Promise (the Kingdom of God).

Day 1: Exodus 16 Israel soon forgot God’s goodness and began to murmur. The ‘manna’ (verses 14-18) had to be collected and eaten daily – like our daily bread from God’s Word. “Give us this day our daily bread.”
Day 2: Exodus 17

The smitten rock (verse 6) pointed to Christ who would be a fountain of life. (1 Corinthians 10:4).

Day 3: Exodus 19 The Israelites were special to God (verses 5-6) as those in Christ also are (1 Peter 2:9). Moses ascends the mountain to receive the famous commandments.
Day 4: Exodus 20 The Ten Commandments were guides to Israel’s happiness. See Mark 12: 28-34 and Luke 10:25-28.
Day 5: Exodus 24 Israel said they would be obedient (verse 7) but failed. We all need a Saviour!
Day 6: Exodus 25 The Tabernacle, at the centre of the Camp, pointed forward to Christ who should be at the centre of our lives.
Day 7: Exodus 32 It is important to worship God in His way, not our own (verse 5). Man makes his own gods but they are always degrading.
