From Slavery to Sonship

Exodus 15:22 – 17:7


- Exodus is about deliverance and freedom – both from and into

o Deliverance from bondage

o Freedom to move into promised land

- A foreshadow of salvation

- Exodus portrays Christ as our Passover Lamb

- Today will focus on slave vs. son

1. Slaves, sons, & inheritance

a. Galatians 4: 6-7 Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father." So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.
