A PICTURE OF SALVATION IN EXODUS

"Therefore, say to the people of Israel: 'I am the LORD. I will free you from your oppression and will rescue you from your slavery in Egypt. I will redeem you with a powerful arm and great acts of judgment. I will claim you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God who has freed you from your oppression in Egypt. I will bring you into the land I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I will give it to you as your very own possession. I am the LORD!'"
(Exodus 6:6-8)

These words God spoke to Moses and Aaron are a picture of what He did for the whole world if they would accept it through faith in Jesus Christ.

1. God freed us from the oppressor, Satan, and from every way he oppresses us.

2. God rescued us from our slavery to sin.

3. God redeemed us with a powerful arm. He made Jesus, Who knew no sin, to be sin for us so we could be the righteousness of God in Him. He overcame the world and defeated Satan. He was raised from the dead and defeated death.

4. He claimed us as His own, and through faith in Jesus, we become children of God, and He becomes our God and Father.

5. We are already citizens of heaven, and when we die or at the end of time, whichever comes first, He will take us up to heaven to be with Him forever.

God is so good to us! Take some time today to thank Him and praise Him for everything He did for you and me.
