Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
This Morning's Key Points:

1) God's proclamation: "...God spoke..."

2) God's Person: "I am the LORD..."

3) God's people: "...your God...brought you out..."

4) God's position: "... your GOD..."

5) God's power: "...who brought you out of the land of Egypt..."

6) God's provision: "...out of the place of slavery."


Restated positively: "I am to be your only God."

"Each of the ten plagues was more than just a dramatic sign to Pharaoh that he must release the Hebrews. Each was a symbolic defeat of an Egyptian deity. Osiris, whose bloodstream was believed to be the Nile, bleeds out before his worshipers when Yahweh turns the Nile to blood. In reverence to Heqet, the frog-goddess of birth, Egyptians regarded frogs as sacred and not to be killed. Yahweh slays them by the thousands. Egyptian gods governing fertility, crops, livestock, and health are all shown to be impotent before the mighty outstretched arm of Israel’s God. In the ninth plague of darkness, Yahweh demonstrates his rule over the sun god Ra, whom Pharaoh was believed to embody. And in the final plague, the death of the firstborn, God shows Himself supreme over the entire Egyptian pantheon by demonstrating His power over life and death. One God toppling all rivals."
-- Jen Wilkin, Ten Words to Live By, p. 23

Discuss this as a family this week:
-- How well does your family know the Ten Commandments? Can you name all 10 without looking and working together? Can any one person in your family name all 10?
-- Why do you think it was so important for God to connect what He had done for Israel to His Commandments in verses 1-2 of Exodus 20?
-- Which Commandment are you most looking forward to learning about during this series? Why?
