Sermon Summary: "Solemn and Sublime"

Each text in the Bible has both a meaning and a tone and a sermon should capture both. Our passage begins with a solemn ceremony and ends with a sublime meeting with God. In verses 3 through 8, we see the people of Israel are bound by the book and the blood. It’s a solemn moment. Then, in verses 9 through 11, we see an amazing scene where God appears to Moses and the elders of Israel. This certainly is sublime and awe inspiring. The theme of our church’s journey through the book of Exodus is “From Captivity to Covenant.” Here we see God fulfilling his word to covenant with his people as he promised. God does the same through Jesus Christ, the final sacrifice for our sins and the ultimate revelation of God Himself.
