Dear UCC Parents,
This week's session of The Gospel Project for Kids was about Moses’ birth and calling. The story of Moses’ birth is one of the most spectacular stories in the Bible. Not only did God save Moses from the evil intentions of Pharaoh, He actually used the evil pharaoh to raise the child that would provide salvation for His people.
Moses’ early life was tumultuous at best. Little is known of his upbringing beyond what is recorded in the early verses of Exodus 1. We do know that Moses grew up in the Pharaoh’s household and most likely learned much about Egyptian life. Moses had to move away after killing an Egyptian, but years later he had an encounter with God that changed his life forever.
God saved Moses for a special purpose. Through Moses, God rescued His people who were enslaved by the Egyptians. God called Moses out for service. He called His Son, Jesus, for a greater service: to provide salvation for all people from their enslavement to sin.
Verses for family Bible reading this week:
Exodus 1:8-2:10,23-25; 3:1-4:20
