"Bitter Water Made Sweet" - Exodus 15:22-27 (Larry Malament)

April 15, 2018 Speaker: Larry Malament Series: Exodus

Verse: Exodus 15:22–15:27

Sermon Quotes:

John Mackay: “It is God’s normal way of working that entering into glory does not immediately follow salvation. Rather there is a time of preparation to make his people ready for the inheritance he will bestow on them. That was the method he followed in the case of the Israelites. Free they indeed were from the hand of the Egyptian control, but they still had much to learn. For one thing their faith was still very weak, and it would take time for their trust in the Lord to develop so that they would be able to face every set of circumstances without hesitation. They were led into times of difficulty and testing so that their spiritual faculties might be developed. It was one thing to sing the praises of their Deliverer, and quite another to live out that faith when confronted with problems of ordinary living.”

 

Philip Ryken: “It is not a sin for us to bring God our problems. He invites us to talk things over with him through prayer. What is a sin, however, is to have a complaining heart that poisons our communion with Christ, and robs us of our fellowship with him.”

 

Philip Ryken: “What we suffer may be bitter in itself, but however bitter it is, it does not need to make us bitter. The problem at Marah was not the water, but bitter people who do not trust God.”
