After God appoints Moses to confront Pharaoh and lead the Israelites out of slavery, they come to Mount Sinai, where God invites them to become “a kingdom of priests.” But things do not go as planned for the Israelites. In this video, we explore the beginning of the failed priesthood and the need for the ultimate royal priest, who will intercede on behalf of his people and offer his life for the failures of others.
Today, our reading comes from Exodus 4-6 as we see circumstances for the Israelites go from bad to worse, and God makes a promise for deliverance. This reading is a reminder that God is working even when life feels impossible.
