BIBLE PASSAGE Exodus 32:30–35
STORY “A Fancy Tent and a Foolish Cow”
GOSPEL CONNECTION Earlier in Exodus, Israel had been saved from the big, bad Egyptians.
But now Israel came face-to-face with another enemy: the sin within them.
Salvation comes when God defeats his enemies, but salvation also comes when God is gracious and merciful with us in our sin. But why was God able to forgive Israel? Was it simply because Moses was such a good mediator? No. There had to be something more. And that more would come in Jesus, when he paid the penalty for our sin. Do you know we have the same enemy as the Israelites?
No, not the Egyptians. Our own sin. So we need the same rescuer—Jesus!
