Let My People Go

It has been fascinating at First Baptist Cape Coral to look at the life of Moses. The theme was God’s message to Pharoah through Moses, to let God’s people go from Egyptian bondage and slavery. The obvious application is to our lives today. That through the power of the Cross and faith in Christ, we can be set free from the bondage of the world, the flesh and the devil — to live our lives freely in Christ. We can be set free from habit, temptation, addiction, whatever. Moses leading the children of Israel through the Red Sea is a portrait of our salvation.

We celebrate the Cross and the Resurrection this month. Jesus died on the Cross for our sins. And he arose from the tomb to set us free — conquering death and hell.

Meanwhile, we will complete our look at Moses this weekend. We will look at the death of Moses. Moses is the only person ever recorded in Scripture to be buried by God. And while God did not permit him before his death to enter the Promised Land, in the New Testament Moses came back to stand with Christ on the Mount of Transfiguration — in the Promised Land.
