Today we will see the process of the calling of the deliverer
Verse 1 – Presents the reality of the deliverers season in life.
Verses 2-4 – Moses’ curiosity as he encounters the Holy God
Verses 5-6 – How to approach the Holy God

Why study Exodus?
1) The Old Testament is the Word of God to us as well. 2) To know God better. 3) To understand God’s deliverance and redemption better. 4) To learn lessons for living out our faith as the people of God, including many of Israel’s failures.
