For Further Discussion

God is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. How He interacts with humankind has always maintained a pattern also. Read, carefully, the following Scriptures through this lens: where in this story do we see the Triune God - Father-Son-Holy Spirit?: Exodus 14:19, Exodus 23:20-24, Isaiah 63:7-14 --- Malachi 3:1 --- Exodus 33:7-11
As God led and protected and spoke to His people then, what parallels can we make about His interaction with us today?

Preparing For Next Week

Please reread Exodus Chapter 14
