Worship Your God: 'The LORD Has Become My Salvation'

Exodus 15:1-27

  1. Celebrating New Year as a saved people
    How did we celebrate the new year? Among the many things we could celebrate over the Christmas and New Year, did we celebrate the fact that God has saved us from sin and death? Because this is what the Song of Moses and of Miriam was about. It was the song and dance and celebration of a new nation as they began their new year as a saved people under God.
  2. The song of a saved people (vv.1-18)
    People who are saved by God are people who sing to God. In Exodus 15, we have this song which is a celebration of what God’s people will do, in response to who their God is and what he does. What is the lesson here for the songs that God’s people should sing today in celebration?
  3. The dance of a saved people (vv.19-21)
    What does it look like to have fun and celebrate in the New Year? It is good to sing and dance and have a good time like the people of Israel were. In light of their salvation, they were full of energy and excitement, and Miriam directed their energy, singing and dancing to praise the Lord together. So should we, whenever there is occasion for celebration and excitement. We should use it as an occasion to turn it around to praise our God because he has saved us.
  4. Trouble and testing for a saved people (vv.22-27)
    What does life look like after the New Year celebration? It took only a few days for the excitement and celebration to wear off for this brand new nation of Israel, and the everyday reality of life as God’s people began during their pilgrimage. It would be trouble and testing for them as they worked out their salvation with God. So also with us and life with our God as we continue our own difficult pilgrimage towards the heavenly country. What is God’s wisdom to us that we need to hear on our own journey?
