Sermon: 1 Kings 10:14-29 Title: Seated on His Throne Main point for the kids bulletins: Our King in heaven shares His wisdom and wealth to His people who come into His Kingdom. Three points for the adults' bulletins: (1) The Shields and the Forest of Lebanon; (2) The Great Ivory Throne; (3) The War Machines and Tribute; and (4) Christ on the Great White Throne in Heaven. Discussion Question(s): 1. In your own words, describe Solomon's wealth and how you imagine them to be like. 2. How does Christ have greater glory and wealth than Solomon? Compare (1) the palace, (2) the throne, and (3) the tribute. 3. What does it mean for Solomon to rule from the throne with wisdom? 4. How does the peak of Solomon's reign point to Christ and His reign in heaven from His throne? 5. Does this matter to you? Why? 6. Why does this matter to believers? How might you share and reflect on this glory and wisdom of Christ with others? 7. Why should this matter to non-believers? How might you share this glory and wisdom of Christ with non-believers? I hope that reflecting on the glory and wisdom of Christ from His throne in Heaven will bring comfort and courage to everybody this Lord's Day.

Exodus 16:1-21 Bread from Heaven Summary: Have you ever been really hungry? Most of us know what that feels like, but very few of us have ever truly been starving. And, most of us have not feared running out of food. Israel in the wilderness struggled with complaining against God, and one of their complaints was about food. Where would it come from? Does God really care? Today we'll see how God responds, providing food, but also calling His people to trust him daily. Let's listen carefully to God's Word together: Outline: 1. The grumbling of unbelief 2. The gift of daily bread 3. The need for the Bread of Life Verse: John 6:35 ... “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

Exodus 15:22-27 Testing Summary: If you trust Jesus, you are on your journey to heaven, much like the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness on the way to the Promised Land. Life in the wilderness can be difficult, but it is where God wants to teach us to trust and obey Him. It takes our entire life to learn how to do this! Let's think about it: Outline: 1. The wilderness reveals our lack of faith 2. The wilderness is where we learn to trust and obey 3. The wilderness will eventually lead to the Promised Land Verse: Acts 14:22...

Text: Luke 7:16-23. Title: “The Heart of Disability Ministry” Outline (I give the same outline to kids and adults) Let me know if you want/need more than this. The Question The Answer What it means for us today 2-3 sentence summary directed to kids: God made you and He made everyone in the world. When you look around you realize that God made every one of us different and special. This morning as we look at the Bible, we are going to see that Jesus loved to spend time with people of all abilities and He welcomed them to be part of His family. Memory verse Exodus 34:6-7

Exodus 14:15-31 The Red Sea Summary: Today we are going to hear about the greatest miracle in the Old Testament: the moment when God parted the Red Sea and saved His people Israel from the army of Egypt. Let's see today how God was glorified (honored and worshipped) as He saved his people and judged His enemies: Outline: 1. God gets glory as He leads and protects His people 2. God gets glory as He judges the wicked 3. God gets glory as He saves His people Verse: Hebrews 11:29 By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land... Discussion Questions for devotions and family worship: 1. How does God gain glory in the Exodus? How is God glorified in the judgment of the wicked, as well as the salvation of His people? 2. Why do many people want to find a natural explanation for the Red Sea crossing? How does this passage show that this is clearly a supernatural act of God? 3. Why does the New Testament compare Moses to Jesus? (See Heb. 3:1-6) How is Jesus the better Moses, and how might this account of the Exodus teach us more about our great salvation through Christ? 4. When God's people saw the mighty judgment on Egypt, and God's great salvation, it says that they

Exodus 14:1-14 The Lord Will Fight for Your Summary: When you are afraid, what do you do? Do you go to your parents? Do you hide? Do you pray for God's help? Today in Exodus let's watch how God stepped in when His people are in trouble. The army of Egypt chased them down in the desert, but God fought for His people, and He fights for us too. Let's think about it: Outline: 1. The Lord of glory has a battle plan 2. The evil one wants you back 3. Stand firm and watch the Lord fight for you Verse: Exodus 14:14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Discussion Questions: 1. In this passage, God led his people into what seemed like a vulnerable position that actually led Egypt to pursue them. Why did God do this? Is there an application for us in this? 2. When Pharaoh and his army pursued Israel, they turned on Moses (see 14:10-12). After tasting the freedom we have in Christ, how might we be tempted to turn back to our old life when a crisis comes? 3. Moses rebukes Israel by telling them to

Exodus 13:17-22 The Glory Cloud Summary: How do you know that God is with you every day? When Israel left Egypt, God gave them something amazing: a giant pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire at night to guide them and show them that He was with them. Sometimes we might wish for something like that. But believe it or not, God gives us something even better! Let's think about how God cared for His people, then and now: Outline: 1. The wisdom of God 2. The promise of God 3. The presence of God Verse: Exodus 13:21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light.... Discussion Questions: 1. Why did God guide Israel in the opposite direction of their destination? How does this show God's wisdom? How might God's plan for you feel like this at times? 2. Why was it so significant for Israel to carry Joseph's bones out of Egypt? How does this show us what it means to believe God's promises? 3. What did the pillar of cloud and fire show Israel? While we might wish for something like this in our lives, how can we know that God is present and guiding us today?

Exodus 13:1-3, 11-16 Set Apart the Firstborn Summary: Did you know that you belong to God? Today we'll hear about another command that God gave to Israel to help them remember how He rescued His people from slavery. Because God required the lives of the firstborn in Egypt, He also called Israel to set apart all the firstborn in Israel, not for death, but as a sign of His ownership and salvation. Let's think about what it means to belong completely to the Lord together: Outline: 1. God our Father owns you completely 2. The power of redemption saves you from death 3. Tell your children they belong to the Lord 4. Jesus Christ is God's true firstborn Verse: Exodus 4:22 Thus says the Lord,
