“I will take you to myself” (Exodus 6:6-8)

Dr. Greg Herrick September 17, 2019

Introduction & Context

Exodus is a book that reveals God’s mercy, power, faithfulness and holiness in truly exhilarating ways. The story focuses on how God rescued His people who were in cruel bondage to Pharaoh and the Egyptian task-masters in Egypt. He raised up a person named Moses – and after some serious training and 40 years in the desert – He used Moses to lead the people safely out of Egypt and to set them on a track for the promised land – a land filled with “milk and honey”!

God had blessed His people in Egypt, but the Egyptians had subjected them to cruel, forced-labor (1). So, God raised up a deliverer, Moses (2-4), and sent him to Pharaoh to demand that he release the Israelites to go into the wilderness to worship their God. Pharaoh responded by accusing the Israelites of laziness. He then increased their labor burdens, leading the Israelite foreman to take issue with Moses (5). So, Moses complained to God 5:22ff) and God reassured him concerning His plan to deliver His people (6:1-8). Unfortunately, the Israelites immediately responded with unbelief. They let their pain get in the way of believing what God was doing. How often do we let our pain get in the way of trusting the Greater Moses, Jesus?

Now that you have a bit of the context, read Exodus 6:6-8 using the 3 easy questions. May God bless you richly as you meet with Him in His word.

Let’s Read Exodus 6:6-8

Deliverance From
6 Therefore, tell the Israelites, ‘I am the Lord. I will bring you out from your enslavement to the Egyptians, I will rescue you from the hard labor they impose, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.

Deliverance To
7 I will take you to myself for a people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from your enslavement to the Egyptians. 8 I will bring you to the land I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob—and I will give it to you as a possession. I am the Lord.’”
