This weekend I concluded our series, “Expecting a Miracle,” at Eastbrook Church, with a message entitled “Set Me Free.” In this message, I focused on the exodus from Egypt in Exodus 11-15. talked through three aspects of freedom the Israelites found in the Exodus:
- Liberation from the shackles of slavery
- Redemption by the blood of a lamb
- Salvation from the enemies that surround
I then connected those themes from the exodus from Egypt with freedom we experience in Jesus the Messiah, who is a liberator, redeemer, and savior.
The outline for the message is below, although I didn’t hold to it strictly. You can listen to the message online here or download it via the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, we continued our series “Expecting a Miracle” with a message entitled “Wonder Working God.” This message was an exploration of the miraculous events and plagues brought upon Egypt by God in order to bring the Israelites to freedom in the exodus, as recorded in Exodus 7-12. In one part of the message I delivered an aside on the question of whether it is rational to believe in miracles or not.
