Key Verse: Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
Key Words: The People | Power | Passover
Today we looked at how Moses, a true hero of the faith, believed God could use him for big things, despite his weaknesses.
For our beginning activity we had the campers try and complete tasks that are normally completed using your hands (writing your name, catching a ball, etc.), with their feet. After the activity we talked about how our feet are not equipped to do the same things as our hands. We talked about how God is able to equip his people to do things they wouldn’t be able to do otherwise – just like Moses!
The people, power, and Passover were our three key words for the day. These words are illustrated through the heroic story of Moses. When we allow God to use us, even in our weaknesses, his power will shine through!
Moses showed us that our faith could change the course of our lives. Moses could have led two very different nations – the Egyptians or the Hebrews. Moses had many doubts and weaknesses that made him insecure, but God overcame those weaknesses. Putting our faith in him, like Moses did, will make us stronger. Moses was able to lead God’s people out of slavery by putting his faith in God. We are offered the same deliverance through The Hero, Jesus.
Listed below are questions about today’s study to ask your camper when they come home tonight.
- Can you name any times that God has interrupted our lives so that He could use us to tell His story?
- In 2 Corinthians 12:9 what does it say is perfect? When?
- What did God do for his people at the Red Sea? What did The People have to do?
- Do you think God opens up opportunities in our lives that we can walk into together?
This hero had faith when he listened to God, went to Pharaoh, and asked for God’s people to be free. He believed that God could use him despite his weaknesses, and God shined in those weaknesses! Jesus became the true and better version of the Passover lamb, sacrificed to save The People. Jesus, the real Hero, offers this freedom for anyone who has faith in Him.
