Exit From Slavery

God’s people, the Israelites, had been in slavery for years enduring harsh treatment and suffered bitterly under the oppression of the Egyptians. As far removed as our culture is from the practice of physical slavery, many of us are still in bondage; spiritually enslaved to sin. The Israelite’s story of slavery is our story of slavery to sin. Like God’s message of freedom from the Egyptians, God is declaring freedom from slavery for His people today.

God hears our cries. He is concerned about our struggles with sin and He has come down to rescue us. Through Christ, God has rescued us from the oppression sin. Notice that God does not only tell Moses that He is taking them out of Egypt but that He is taking them somewhere else. He gave the Israelites freedom from slavery so he could give them more: “a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey.” God wants to free us from the bondage of whatever sin we struggle with to lead us into a life that is more than can be imagined. Take hold of your freedom in Christ today, using the freedom He has given you to live for Him.
