From Here to There
“From Here to There” is a new series centered around the book of Exodus, and how God moved the Israelites from “here to there.” Similarly, God has dreams for our future, and He leads us to where He wants us to be. In order to begin the journey, we must address issues that keep us from moving. In “Slavery,” Pastor Dave Gustavsen talks about the nature of slavery, the silence of God, and the strategy of God.
For the Hebrew people, here was not a good place to be. As despised slaves in Egypt, they were stripped of dignity and without hope. But God had a dream for their future: to bring them there. Through some of the most memorable events in history—the burning bush, Moses confronting Pharaoh, crossing the Red Sea—God powerfully led his people from here to there. It’s an epic story…and it can be our story. Whatever our here is, will we trust the God who wants to lead us there?
