The God Who Rescues

Series: Exodus: The God Who Is

The God Who Rescues

September 27, 2020 | Cody O'Hara

Passage: Exodus 14:15-31

In the crossing of the Red Sea, God, by His grace, rescues His people from the hands of the Egyptians and creates a set apart people who are called to live in remembrance of God’s glorious work. The Book of Exodus chronicles this journey from slavery to salvation for the Israelites but also echoes the the same journey for us in the Gospel, in which we are called to remember and live in faithful obedience to Christ. Join us Sunday as we take a closer look at the crossing of the Red Sea.

Exodus 15:1-3,11-13

Leader: Lift up your hearts

Congregation: Our hearts are lifted up to the Lord


Almighty God, 

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, maker and judge of us all: 

We acknowledge and lament our many sins and offenses, 

which we have committed by thought, word, and deed

against your divine majesty, 

provoking most justly your righteous anger against us. 

We are deeply sorry for these our transgressions; 

the burden of them is more than we can bear. 

Have mercy upon us, 

Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; 

for your Son our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, 

forgive us all that is past; 

and grant that we may evermore serve and please you 

in newness of life, 

to the honor and glory of your Name; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord. 



Psalm 103:8-14


I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

and born of the virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended to hell.

The third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended to heaven

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.

From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic* church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

His Mercy Is More

Matt Boswell | Matt Papa


Praise the Lord His mercy is more

Stronger than darkness new every morn

Our sins they are many His mercy is more

Verse 1

What love could remember no wrongs we have done

Omniscient all knowing He counts not their sum

Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore

Our sins they are many His mercy is more

Verse 2

What patience would wait as we constantly roam

What Father so tender is calling us home

He welcomes the weakest the vilest the poor

Our sins they are many His mercy is more

Verse 3

What riches of kindness He lavished on us

His blood was the payment His life was the cost

We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford

Our sins they are many His mercy is more

Lord I Need You

Christy Nockels | Daniel Carson | Jesse Reeves | Kristian Stanfill | Matt Maher

Verse 1

Lord I come I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

And without You I fall apart

You're the one that guides my heart


Lord I need You oh I need You

Ev'ry hour I need You

My one defense my righteousness

Oh God how I need You

Verse 2

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are Lord I am free

Holiness is Christ in me


So teach my song to rise to You

When temptation comes my way

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You

Jesus You're my hope and stay

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You

Jesus You're my hope and stay


Exodus 14:15-31

Leader: This is the Word of the Lord!

Congregation: Thanks be to God!



Ancient Of Days
by CityAlight

Verse 1

Though the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall

There is still one king reigning over all

So I will not fear for this truth remains:

That my God is the Ancient of Days


None above him None before him

All of time in his hands

For His throne it shall remain and ever stand

All the power All the glory

I will trust in His name

For my God is the Ancient of days

Verse 2

Though the dread of night Overwhelms my soul

He is here with me I am not alone

O his love is sure and he knows my name

For my God is the Ancient of Days

Verse 3

Though I may not see What the future brings

I will watch and wait for the Saviour king

Then my joy complete standing face to face

In the presence of the Ancient of Days


Verse 1

Come and stand before your maker

Full of wonder full of fear

Come behold his power and glory

Yet with confidence draw near

For the one who holds the heavens

And commands the stars above

Is the God who bends to bless us

With an unrelenting love

Chorus 1


Come and lift your hands and raise your voice

He is worthy of all praise


Sing the mercies of your king

And with trembling rejoice

Verse 2

We are children of the promise

The beloved of the Lord

Won with everlasting kindness

Bought with sacrificial blood

Bringing reconciliation

To a world that longs to know

The affections of a father

Who will never let them go

Verse 3

All our sickness all our sorrows

Jesus carried up the hill

He has walked this path before us

He is walking with us still

Turning tragedy to triumph

Turning agony to praise

There is blessing in the battle

So take heart and stand amazed

Chorus 2


Come and lift your hands and raise your voice

He is worthy of all praise


Sing the mercies of your king

And with trembling


When you cry to him he hears your voice

He will wipe away your tears


In the midst of suffering

He will help you sing


Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise him above ye heavenly hosts

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
