Exodus 7 A Heart of Stone Summary: The Bible talks a lot about our hearts. When God speaks of our heart, He means that spiritual place inside of us that either learns to love God, or wants to go our own sinful way. In Exodus 7, God shows us the hard, stony heart of Pharaoh who refused to bow. But it also shows us that God is mighty and powerful, over Pharaoh's heart, and over all other competing powers. Let's think about it: Outline: 1. The obedience of God's servant 2. The weakness of God's enemy 3. The unstoppable power of God 4. The hard heart of unbelief Verse: Exodus 7:13 (ESV)13 Still Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said. Discussion Questions: 1. What is significant about the way Moses and Aaron acted in this chapter compared to the previous chapters of Exodus? Why is this so important? 2. How does God attack the heart and idols of Pharaoh and the Egyptians? How does God still do that today when He confronts our own sin? 3. How do we understand the fact that God hardened Pharaoh's heart? How can God also hold Pharaoh responsible for his sin? (See Romans 9:14-26 for Paul's thoughts on this). What warnings does this give us about refusing God's call to believe the Gospel? 4. How does God's victory over Pharaoh point us to Jesus' ultimate victory over Satan? As you engage in the spiritual battles of this life, pray that God would give us courage and faith to trust Him this week.
