We are a saved people. We don’t need to be improved morally. We need to be rescued. God is the great Rescuer. That is the message of the book of Exodus. The entire Bible, really. Echoes of Israel’s exodus from slavery in Egypt can be heard from the beginning pages of Genesis to the last chapters of Revelation, because it is our story too. In Jesus, we have been delivered from the greater slavery of sin and death and transformed by the Spirit into joyful and obedient worshippers. We are an exodus-shaped people.
