God as a God of love and grace redeemed Israel from Egypt.
God as a God of holiness and justice requires His redeemed people to reach the highest moral standards with the giving of the law.
Now the God of glory and beauty establishes a system of worship for his covenant people.

Main point: God refuses to go with the Israelites because of their sins, but he still meets with Moses outside the camp at the Tent of Meeting, where God talks to Moses like a friend. In true worship, we need to commit to God by learning from his ways and seeking his presence.
1) God refuses to go with the Israelites
2) The Tent of Meeting
3) Friends with God

Main point: Idolatry is a sin against God, so we must destroy the idols in our hearts that try to replace God. Jesus has taken our sins as a perfect sacrifice so that we will not be blot out of the Book of Life like the Israelites in the wilderness.
1) The golden calf of idolatry
2) Putting idolatry to death
3) Blotting out of the book of the LORD

Main point: The Israelites protested against the Lord, and God provided them Manna, the bread from Heaven for food. Manna symbolises the eternal bread of life through Jesus Christ. God also gives us the gift of weekly Sabbath rest for us to enjoy.
1) Bread from Heaven
2) The Bread of Life
3) A Sabbath for Man

Main point: We shall not grumble in bad situations like the Israelites but
ask God for help. God gives us commands and trials in life for our
sanctification through training of our faith. His abundant provision satisfies
our physical and spiritual needs through Jesus.
1) What are we to drink?
2) The Lord’s instruction and test
3) Twelve springs and seventy palm trees

The Passover initiated by God through Moses is a ‘type’ or picture of
the redemption we have through Jesus Christ.
