Sermon Application Questions: 1. Go back and read Exodus 19:4-6 especially noticing the order of things. Are you ever tempted to slip back into thinking that it is your obedience that is the grounds of your standing with God? What is the ground of your standing with God? Why is it tempting to slip back into a works-righteousness? Think about that question carefully because knowing the answer will likely help you avoid the temptation. 2. Do the 10 Commandments (or any other command from God) sound ‘foreboding’ to you or liberating and confidence-engendering? Where is the truly good life found? 3. Do you feel like you are God’s ‘treasured possession’? Why or why not? Music and Lyrics Used by Permission CCLI# 1595532

Sermon Application Questions: 1. Why does God have the writer of Psalm 105 rewrite the events he’s already had Moses record in the book of Exodus? What does the fact that this psalm was written 400 years after Exodus say about its usefulness for us living so many years after the Exodus? 2. How does that saying, “The way to build trust in a relationship is to make promises and keep them” strike you? Do you think it is true? Does it help you in your appreciation of God or does it seem like it doesn’t really apply? 3. What promises that God has made are most precious to you and would be most devastating to you if God did not “remember”? What accounts of God’s remembering in the past do you need to “remember” (v. 5) that will help you trust him now?

Music and Lyrics Used by Permission CCLI# 1595532 Sermon Application Questions: Think of the two main points from today’s message: 1. God means his presence with his people to be uninterrupted. 2. God means his presence to be known by his people. Reflect on each of these truths as they relate to your life, and then ask: What is the level of my confidence in and my experience of God’s presence? How do I think about it? How does it affect my day-to-day life? How might I grow in experiencing what God desires for me?
