Luke 7:1-10

Jesus was amazed at this man's faith. He had more faith than all of Israel during Jesus' time.

Would Jesus be able to say the same about anyone in your church? Why or why not?

Where does faith come from?

What evidence is there in the text to support Jesus' statement about the centurion?

God Prepares Men to Lead His People Exodus 17-18

Exodus 17-18

God Prepares Men to Lead His People

God has already called and established Moses and his brother Aaron as leaders over his people, as well as Joshua ben Nun, a capable young man, as Moses' protegé and intern leader-in-training.  Now, God begins to prepare and groom leaders, old and new, from among His people. 

Passages:

  1. Ex 17:1-7
  2. Ex 17:8-16
  3. Ex 18:1-27


God Lovingly Provides For His Ungrateful People

The people gather manna as instructed in Exodus 16

Today we read and discussed Exodus 15:22-27, Exodus 16:1-36, and Exodus 17:1-7 which together show how God lovingly provided for His people after freeing them from slavery in Egypt by providing them with water, meat, and daily bread for forty years while he prepared them to be a holy people ready to enter the Promised Land and while they complained nearly the entire time.
