Why We Worship: Because God Uses Our Testimony

by Pastor Chip Dean


1. Your Start

Exodus 1:22

Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.

Exodus 2:1-10

Now a man from the house of Levi went and took as his wife a Levite woman. The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months. When she could hide him no longer, she took for him a basket made of bulrushes and daubed it with bitumen and pitch. She put the child in it and placed it among the reeds by the river bank. And his sister stood at a distance to know what would be done to him.

Now the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her young women walked beside the river. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her servant woman, and she took it. When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby was crying. She took pity on him and said, This is one of the Hebrewschildren.” Then his sister said to Pharaohs daughter, Shall I go and call you a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?

And Pharaohs daughter said to her, Go.So the girl went and called the childs mother. And Pharaohs daughter said to her, Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages.So the woman took the child and nursed him. When the child grew older, she brought him to Pharaohs daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses, Because,she said, I drew him out of the water.


2. Your Sin.

Exodus 2:11-15

One day, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and looked on their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his people. He looked this way and that, and seeing no one, he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

When he went out the next day, behold, two Hebrews were struggling together. And he said to the man in the wrong, Why do you strike your companion?He answered, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you mean to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?Then Moses was afraid, and thought, Surely the thing is known.When Pharaoh heard of it, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from Pharaoh and stayed in the land of Midian. And he sat down by a well.


3. Your Salvation.

Exodus 3:1-8

Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed.

And Moses said, I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, Moses, Moses!And he said, Here I am.Then he said, Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.And he said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

Then the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey

Exodus 3:10

Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.
