Exodus 1:1-14, 3:1-22 — We all know the famous Nativity scene. By this time of year there is probably one set-up in our local shopping centre! But who exactly is the baby laying in the manger? Why all the fuss about His birth? These are the questions we’re going to explore in this Christmas series.
In this first sermon, we learn that the One in the manger is the same Person who spoke to Moses out of the burning bush. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God whose name is “I AM”, and just as He came to deliver Israel out of bondage in Egypt, so has He come to deliver us.
