Exodus Lesson: The Call of Moses
Step 1: Excite
Moses was in Midian for forty years. He married and had children. He was shepherding sheep when God called him. Moses had several excuses why he couldn’t do what God asked.
Brainstorm and Discuss: If God ever asked you to do something that seemed very hard what would you do? Would you tell God you can’t do it? Read Philippians 4:13.
Step 2: Examine
Read about the call of Moses in Exodus:
- God takes knowledge of Israel’s sad plight (2:23-25)
- God calls Moses at a burning bush (3:1-4:17)
