Perhaps one of the well-known stories in the Bible is the story of the Moses and the Red Sea crossing. I've heard it so many times that it seems a little "normal."
Yep. Just a huge group of people standing in front of a gigantic body of water and a huge army at their heels. Then, God parts the sea, the people walk through it, and they are rescued from the Egyptians.
When you really think about this story, it is astounding and miraculous. The Israelites had no hope--they were truly in a lose-lose situation. But God. He rescued them--in a way that could only point to Him.
Maybe you've had moments like that in your life--you were in a hopeless or sticky place. But God. God provided a way out that only He could provide. The best example of this in all of our lives is that we were hopelessly separated by God because of sin. But God provided a way out through Jesus (the greatest Rescuer of all time). Isn't that the best news?!
The letter R is for God is our Rescuer. This is such a sweet truth to teach our children (and remind ourselves). He is the superhero of all superheros :)
This lesson focuses on the story of the Israelites escape from Egypt and kids might get a little messy with some water and wind sensory play. My favorite is teaching them the song "Pharaoh, Pharaoh"--actions included (anyone else remember singing that at Bible camp?)
Have a good one friends!
