New Commands and a New Covenant

October 16, 2016
Rev. Lusienie Fofana
Scripture Readings: Exodus 20:1-10, Hebrews 12:25-29, John 4:19-24

Read The Story, Chapter 5

or if you don’t have a Story book, read Exodus 19-20; 24-25; 32-34; 40

Questions to think through and pray through with your small group and family
Taken from the back of The Story book “Discussion Questions”

  1. How were the people to prepare themselves to meet with God?
  2. What does this story of the giving of these new commands tell you about the character of God?
  3. What was the purpose of the 10 Commandments?
  4. How can God be both the merciful forgiver of sin and the punisher of the guilty?
  5. The Israelites became impatient and finally made a golden idol in the shape of a calf for themselves. What are some false gods/idols worshiped in our society today?
  6. The Lord spoke to Moses “as one speaks to a friend.” What steps can you take to gain a deeper understanding of who God is?
