Lesson 4: God Is I Am

Lesson 4: God Is I Am


Dig In to the Bible
·       Read: Exodus 3:1–4:17
·       In This Passage: God appears to Moses in a bush that’s on fire but not burning up. God tells Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, where they’re slaves. Moses doesn’t want to and has a lot of excuses. But God assures him, “I Am Who I Am.” God doesn’t change; he’s the same God today!
·       Bible Point: God doesn’t change…
·       Application: …so we trust him when we’re unsure.
·       Summary Verse: “Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding” (Isaiah 40:28).

·       You’ll Be Teaching: God doesn’t change. So often, God in the Bible can seem like a different God from the one in kids’ lives today. He can seem bigger, more miraculous, and more powerful. Help kids understand that God doesn’t change. The same God who appeared to Moses in a burning bush is present in their lives, ready to do big things through them.
·       Think About: How has your view of God changed? What makes that different from God himself changing?

Dig In to Prayer
·       Pray that God would give kids confidence in who he is, even when they feel unsure.
