Read: Exodus 3:1-15
Listen: Exodus 3

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” Exodus 3:14

God’s people have been enslaved in Egypt for hundreds of years. Yet, God has not forgotten the suffering and plight of his people. He is raising up a leader, Moses, to lead his people out of the land of bondage and into the land of promise. Before commissioning Moses for this task, though, God teaches Moses something profound. God revealed to Moses that he is the “I AM.” This means God is the self-existent one who has always been and will always be. Moses could engage in his mission with confidence, knowing that the great I AM would go before him.

The name of God (I AM) reveals his character and nature. God is limitless. He has no beginning and no end. Take a moment and ponder this great truth. God has always existed. There has never been a moment in which God has not been. Such truth is too much for our finite brains to fully comprehend. How can this even be? How can a being be so grand and so marvelous? Yet such is God, the one deserving of all of our worship.

TODAY: Throughout this sermon series, you should reach a point where truths about God exceed what your finite mind can fully comprehend. That is a good thing. Our infinite God is greater than our finite minds. Allow this mystery and tension to lead you to worship our great God. Join the Ada Bible worship team as they sing “So Will I” to praise God for his limitless.
